I am setting up browsing accross subnets with multiple workgroups and am having
trouble with name resolution to IP address. I was under the impression that
WINS would be able to do that so I set up a WINS server (wins support
= yes) on one segment and the hosts on both segments are configured to point to
that WINS server. Both segments have a Samba server acting as Master browser.
In this configuration browsing does not work unless I place an LMHOSTS file
containing all hosts (for both segments) on each of the (samba) master
browsers. How do I get the name resolving to work without having to create and
maintain those LMHOSTS files?
