Regarding remote network browsing:
We have had mixed success browsing Network Neighborhood from 
PPP-connected Win95 PCs.  Our servers are all SAMBA, no NT here :-)
The Win95s have WINS-server defined correctly in the network
setup (checked by running winipcfg).  We wait a couple of 
minutes after establishing PPP-connection, then try to 
browse.  Now, some Win95s (my OSR2.1, for example :-) browse
without problems, but others with a supposedly similar
setup cannot browse.  Is the problem with older Win95
versions, or something entirely different ?  Note that
we are all dialing in to the same IBM-8235 router, so
everything ought to be the same, yet the Win95s seem to
behave differently.
