i have a network with one machine acting as master router with
2x4-Port-Ethernet-Cards in it - running nmbd!
There are two Windows-Workgroups, WRK1 and WRK2 in each there are
Windows-Exchange-Servers EX1, EX2. In WRK2 the PDC is on EX2, in WRK1 there
is a standalone PDC, PDC1.
Every network is a full 255 IP-Network.
192.168.40.1 WRK1 EX1 (192.168.40.40) PDC1 (192.168.40.42)
192.168.41.1 WRK1 Other Servers
192.168.42.1 WRK2 EX2/PDC2 (192.168.42.40) Clients
192.168.43.1 WRK1 Other Servers
192.168.44.1 WRK1 Clients
192.168.45.1 WRK1 Other Servers
192.168.46.1 WRK1 Other Servers
192.168.47.1 WRK1 Other Servers
On the Router, i have assigned IP 192.168.x.1 to the ethernet cards.
Now, how can i setup browsing correctly thru all this machines? Is a PDC a
WINS? - Which Address should i register in the Servers for WRK1 as WINS -
PDC1 or EX1 ?? I have only one password server - entry in smb.conf, must i
use PDC1 PDC2 for that - and which Workgroup?? - Is it possible to give out
different Workgroups for different interfaces??
One server must run with NetBEUI - is this bad?
Can i get info from the Window-machines, why they don't want to do things?
(Like finding PDC's??)
I already made a configuration, where i can access all machines, but i
cannot browse thru the "network neighboorhood" - path not found is the
message i always get... - and if i change things, than i can browse thru the
"network neighboorhood" but then it says "cannot find PDC" ... ;(
Thanx for any help
