If it works, fine for me :)
My doubt is : will lab2 see the PDC (linux1) knowing there are at least 3 or 4
routers between them?? I have no control on those routers, so I dunno how they
are configurated..
I know NT4 can use Netbeui encapsulated on tcp/ip, but I'm not sure if it will
see the domain... will it?
