 Have a similar problem - only 1 remote subnet.

 But I do have this working fine. :-)

 Win95 worked perfectly after the 'WINS' settings were filled out. However
no combination of LMHOSTS or wins settings would work for wfw 3.11 for me.

 Then after the network guys VLANed all my stuff away from all the other
junk on the network in the remote building, they turned on 'ip-helper'
in the CISCO router and then the Wfw 3.11 machines started working fine.

 Being able to forward the WINS broadcasts back to your server seems to
make the M$ machines happy.
