Hello to all,
BROWSING and WINS-problem:
I currently have set up about 10 or 12 separated networks using Linux
Using Isdn4Linux I have set up static routes to our central office server
My networks use an IP range of 192.168.xx.0/24 where xx is different for
The IP configuration works fine now (I can telnet without any problems,
Clients are mostly Win95 (and a few Win3.11) machines using LM-file sharing.
I have set up each server to be PDC and WINS server for that local network
Thus browsing in the local network works just fine.
I want to be able to include the remote domains in my local browse-list
to resync every then and now. I want to connect to the remote network ONLY
when a direct
access to the remote PDC (or remote browse list) is made.
I know I can't see the remote browse-list without connection, of course, but
when I contact a remote server (by //server-name) the remote domain-name is
added to my
local database but access is denied
"No access to (remote-domain-name). The computer or share with this name
cannot be found"
I can access every share on the remote server just fine, but I cannot access
After I disconnect from the remote server also the remote domain-name
disappears from my
local browse-list (that is ok for me, although annoying)
Here my config: (all remote servers have similar configs: different
workgroup= and different
ip-addresses, 192.168.123.x, 192.168.124.x, ...)
workgroup = LOCAL_DOMAIN
domain master = no
domain logons = yes
encrypt passwords = yes
time server = yes
socket address = 192.168.122.1
remote announce = 192.168.122.255
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
guest account = ftp
security = user
bind interfaces only = true
interfaces = 192.168.122.1/24
wins support = yes
dns proxy = yes
thanks for any help.
