Fix Samba For Mac OS X Lion

After updating to Mac OS X Lion you may have lost access to your My Book World's Samba shares.
This problem can be easily fixed by updating mDNSResponder's config file.

Edit /etc/mDNSResponder.conf. It contains a line that says:

"your hostname" _smb._tcp local. 139

Change it into

"your hostname" _smb._tcp local. 445

Save the file and restart mDNSResponder using this command

/etc/init.d/S9mDNSResponder restart

Now you should be able to connect to your Samba share's again.
