Network Browser: Connection refused by server

Network Browser: Connection refused by server

not sure when it happened, but I can no longer use the Network Browser, not even to set up shares.

Instead of the list of shares I get an error message:

Connection refused by server ()

or sometimes

Connection refused by server (<particular machine>)

I've got shares set up (did that when all was still working), and have no problems accessing configured shares.

The last time I remember it working was before I updated to the latest firmware. Not sure whether it's related, though, it could have broken before or after.

Does anyone have any idea as to what could cause this?

Given I had this error quite a few times for a particular machine, I've decided to see what happens when I turn off that particular machine.

And the error message has changed. With <particular machine> off, the error message now is:

Cannot find the master browser for workgroup (<workgroup>).

All my configured shares in the same workgroup still work fine. No issues there.

Other workgroups work fine as well, btw. I can still browse my other workgroups. It's just that one workgroup, which used to work, and where the configured shares still work, but where I'm now confronted with these issues. And that was all working before.

Does anyone have any idea as to what may be going on here?

I should add, I don't have any issues with my old NMT. I can use the Network Browser fine, even browse that particular machine. And if I switch that machine off, it simply won't appear in the Network Browser, but I can still browse all other machines in the workgroup. This issue seems to be specific to my C-200. Thought I'd better add that bit of information.
