AW: Posting to browselists in other subnets?

Hi Joe,

many routers don't send broadcasts (.255) over the interfaces. As Scott
intended, try:
smbclient -L -U username.

If this doesn't work, try to use the ip adress of the browse master on the
other subnet like: "remote announce =" (assuming
would be the adress of the other browse master).

We have an similar scenery like you:
a subnet and a net connected by a router.
On subnet the samba server "A-Samba" (ip is configured as
the whole browse master via "wins support = yes". It announces the browse
"remote browse sync =", where "" is a samba server,
"B-Samba", on the other subnet. With "wins server =" (means
A-Samba) and
"remote browse sync =" the browse lists are exchanged. So every
client an every subnet sees all connected machines.

Hope this helps
