SSH & Samba Write-up

I solved a windows network connectivity problem I was
having when I was using a socks 5 proxy through an ssh
tunnel to my OpenBSD box for safer browsing. I'd leave
the windows box running but not use it, sometimes for
hours, and more often than not, overnight. When I'd try
to get anywhere with the browser I no could. I still had
connectivity with the OpenBSD box, but that was it. I put
in a batch file that cleans up the local area connection
on the windows box and run it from windows scheduler
every 6 hours and it solved the problem. The addendum,
batch file, and link to the network article that helped me
are at the bottom of my original write-up at:
