Hi folks,

Has anybody been able to login to a DOMAIN on another subnet w/out a WINS
server?  I have a multi-homed samba (1.9.18) server serving a token-ring
and an ethernet network.  My goal is remove one NIC and just have packets
go through a router ( the default gateway ) to get to samba server.  I
created an lmhosts.sam file which does reroute netbios packets from
local interface to designated interface on other subnet.  The
problem is this only seems to work once client is loged in.  When
client tries to login then the message that client could not be
validated against a server..... comes up.  Below are the relevant files.
Thanks Sven.
