Refresing browselists and some Packet logging

I am running Samba 1.9.18p10 using Linux 2.0.36 and Samba is configured as
a WINS server.

It's working fine but there are some questions remaining:
the first one is:
- when somebody who was connected to the network turns of his computer he
will still stay in the browselist for about 30 minutes. I was wondering if
there is a way to shorten this time. The wins.dat file is not containing
this name anymore but the browse.dat file does.
the second and last questing (for now) is:
- if i turn on packet logging i get these weird warnings. The problem is
that i don't recognize the ip-adresses it's sending from, we are not
connected to the internet all the time and the 7 computers on the network i
configured myself and their ip-adresses are 192.168.1.* (int-in means
packages comming in on interface eth0).

Is there anybody who can tell me what ip-adresses, protocols and
portnumbers Samba is using and for what reason. I have tried to find this
information myself but i never got it.

I hope somebody can give me some answers,
greetings Joost Havers.
