wins.dat file is read when nmbd starts and write-back when nmbd stops.
So, if you modify wins.dat manually, first you should stop nmbd.
And then please add entries like:
"SAMBA#1c" 0 192.168.10.67 192.168.10.43 e4R
| ~~~ <-- means NetBIOS group name
| ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ <-- multiple IP addresses is
| seperated with a space
+-- TTL = 0 means forever
"DONAU#20" 0 192.168.10.67 64R
~~~ <-- means NetBIOS unique name
~~ <-- suffix must be written with lower case.
and restart nmbd.
This probably works well, but not much tested.
Please examine and I want a report from you :-)
