    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.

I only have Win95 machines; but cannot log in.  I suspect that it is a
problem with Wins though.  Does your NT Domain have to match your host
name or anything?  I tried to do nmbd -h hdplus (the NT domain is
HDPLUS) but then the Win 95 machines gave the message "incorrect
parameter".  I am stuck!!  back to having the samba machine also be
the router (yuck).

Would it be easy to send me the first half of your smb.conf file?
(not the shares; just the wins, domain name, sections)  Any ideas
how to debug the WINS part of samba?  Documentation in the "browsing"
help files just says to enable it in smb.conf and everything will
magically be fine.
