HOW CAN I FORCE NMBD TO MAP A SPECIFIED GROUPNAME TO A
I have about 12 completely separated networks, all running
Linux/Samba as server and win311/win95/win98 as workstations.
Everything works fine (in every LAN at least).
Problems arise whenever I try to connect to a remote domain.
(I have a 64K ISDN dialup line with ipppd from my central
office network to each of the remote networks.)
The problem for me is, that the WORKGROUP name of the remote
network cannot be looked-up.
My local network has workgroup/domain MYNET.
gives me MYSERVER absolutely correct MYSERVER and all clients.
gives me "name_query failed to find name OTHERNET" while
($)>nmblookup OTHERNET -B 192.168.29.255
works perfect for me, even
works ok, only the remote domain is completely unknown.
although i have set
NAME RESOLVE ORDER = LNHOSTS HOSTS WINS BROADCAST
nmbd never seems to consult the linux-lmhosts file.
I think I got something terribly wrong...
SO, HOW CAN I FORCE NMBD TO MAP A SPECIFIED GROUPNAMES TO
thanks in advance,
