Hello. I have been looking at smbclient source code and it seems to use
gethostbyname first to try to resolve a server name and then tries WINS.
In a dial-in-to-the-ISP situation where the ISP runs the DNS, this may be
a "gotcha" - particularly as we want to use DHCP for PCs and want to print
to a printer attached to one of those PCs with smbclient.
Am I reading this correctly? Has anyone made this combination work
without dialing the ISP for every print job?
