Subject: Re: WINS proxy
Even clients are unmaintained, they always want something.
Now they wants cross-subnet windows networking.
I see 2 ways to resolv my problem:
1. Add new feature to Samba (something like WINS registration proxy)
2. Use lmhosts in WINS server.
Docs says that on every computer should have a copy of lmhosts.
And I don`t found doc about using WINS with lmhosts.
May be someone other find?
Third way may be implemented something like this:
small script (like findsmb) runs every 5 minutes and grabs all local names
into lmhosts file, and when b-mode clients asks WINS server (proxy) it looks
into this file.
