fedora 29 server, cannot see Samba host in Windows 7 workgroup

Hello, I have set up a Fedora 29 Server that I will be using as a file server in a Windows 7 workgroup. I can access the server if i manually connect, but the server does not appear in the network browser.

Here are some clips of my settings:

firewall-cmd --list-services

cockpit dhcpv6-client samba ssh

firewall-cmd --list-ports


smb.conf [global] workgroup = AVB-NET netbios name = AVB-SRV-2 security = user name resolve order = bcast host browsable = yes wins support = yes local master = yes preferred master = yes

passdb backend = tdbsam
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
load printers = yes
cups options = raw
