MAC is not browsing WORKGROUPS, OS X Panther

Hello,

I added my mac to windows domain, but when I go to Network on my mac, I can
see all the domains that we have but cannot browse them. If I type in the
server name manually I can get to it fine: afp://servername or
smb://servername

Thank you

Hi Eimis!

First, I need to clarify that Macs can not join Windows domains. They can
participate as members of a Windows Workgroup (often the same as a domain)
and authenticate to Windows servers in domains, but they will never be
members.

When you click on a domain to try and browse it, what happens?

Also, in Directory Setup on the Mac, did you enter a WINS server address or
leave it blank?
