We are many that have wondered how to make nmblookup work with WINS. Now I
finally found out by using smbdump on a NT client and on nmblookup. The
difference turned out to be that NT asks for a #20 name, while nmblookup
asks for #00.
The #00 request gets completly ignored by the NT WINS server, unless you
are asking for its own name.
The following works:
[root at ormen source]# ./nmblookup odin#20 -B danbo.ostenfeld.dtu.dk
Added interface ip=184.108.40.206 bcast=220.127.116.11 nmask=0.0.0.0
Sending queries to 18.104.22.168
ormen, danbo and odin are on three different broadcast isolated subnets.
