(Yes, I ask a lot of these. I don't get many answers though. A shame.)
The 0x1B name represents a Domain Master Browser (DMB). In Microsoft
terms this is also a PDC. Microsoft created a special extension to handle
these names. You can send a wildcard query with an 0x1B name type to a WINS
server and it will return a list of up to 25 DMB names.
...or so I'm told. I'd like to see this in a capture, if anyone has one.
I want to know what the padding character is. It could either be a space
(common for most name queries) or a nul (used for wildcard queries). It
could be that both are acceptable. I don't have a Microsoft WINS server
to test against.
