Right. I got that. Question was directed mot to the B_NODE flag.
If I have set the 'wins server' paramet in smb.conf the samba_nb_type
should be set to NB_MFLAG arther than NB_BFLAG which is what is showing
up in the outgoing packet
if( lp_wins_support() || (*lp_wins_server()) )
samba_nb_type = NB_MFLAG; /* samba is a 'hybrid' node type. */
samba_nb_type = NB_BFLAG; /* samba is broadcast-only node
} /* set_samba_nb_type */
