Hi Jeremy,

I found that it's impossible to "socket address" if you want to use
nmbd. (I need the socket address usage in order to run samba4wins and
nmbd on the same box).

I changed nmbd to listen explicit on each subnets broadcast address,
in the same way samba4 and samba4wins work. This way you can set
socket address to a unicast address and still receive broadcast messages.

For now I've created a "nmbd:bind explicit broadcast = yes" Option,
but I'll change it to a real documented option before I push it to

I've also implemented NetServerEnum3 (which is needed to get a browse
list with a few thousand entries)

Can you review this patches:
