   You will need to use WINS.  Both NT Server and Samba can act as a WINS

OK, I have WINS enabled in samba, dhcp, and in the Windows 95 control
panel but still can't log into the domain from another subnet.  Here
is a summary of my config options in smb.conf:

os level = 34
domain master = yes
domain logons = yes
wins support = yes

How can I test the WINS server?  wins information is randomly
scattered throughout the samba documentation and all that is ever said
about it is that it is a Good Thing.
