Could someone please explain the following error messages for me (and, 
hopefully) suggest how to fix them.

The box involved is running Linux 2.0.36 and Samba 2.0.3

Running nmblookup -B lxserve __SAMBA__


"Warning: inconsistant interface
Adding interface p= bcast= nmask=

(Netstat and ifconfig outputs look AOK)

I am also getting messages saying :
[timestamp]  libsmb/nmblib.c:send_udp(725) packet send failed to ERRNO=Operation not permitted
[timestamp] nmbd/nmbd_packets.c:send_netbios_packet(170) 
end_netbios_packet:send_packet() to IP port 137 failed.
[timestamp]nmbd/nmbd_namequery.c"query_name(232)query_name:Failed to send 
packet trying to query name WORKGROUP<1d>

Cheers and TIA,
