there seems to be a problem with smbclient in that it appears it cannot do
a WINS lookup if you are trying to use smbclient on the same machine as a
SAMBA server, especially if the SAMBA server is offering WINS capabilities.

Can anyone comment on this, as I need to use WINS with smbclient on the
same machine as the SAMBA and WINS server ...
