Thanks for the swift reply. Ok, so i'm missing #20 on one of the clients in
my wins.dat, and apparently that means "server service". The client in
question does have file sharing working fine, but it won't appear in the
wins.dat... And other machines can't look up the IP from the wins.dat,
because they are looking for the #20 entry (I guess). How can I make this
#20 entry show up? In case you are wondering, the "odd connection" this
client has is a PPTP tunnel over the internet to the samba WINS server.
