domain logons across subnets

I tried to make a win95 machine to perform a domain-logon to
an NT server, which is in a diferent subnet, behind a linux-router.
on this linux-router, I also installed samba.
I noticed in log.nmbd, that the client always queries for
a "0x1c" type, but never gets a response from nmbd.
Thus , I "hacked" the "wins.dat" file, and restartet nmbd:
HBLADOMAIN#1e 883484202 255.255.255.255 ffe0R
HBLADOMAIN#1c 883484202 192.168.1.253 ffe0R
HBLADOMAIN#00 883484205 255.255.255.255 ffe0R
the "1c" entry was put in there by me.
Suddenly, domain-logons worked. (192.168.1.253 is the IP-adresse
of the NT-machine).
a) what is the correct way to do that ? (lmhosts entry ?)
b) why did it work ?
thanks in advance,
