WINS serving

Hi all,

I use Samba (nmbd) for WINS serving round here.

Any one know how to set up two WINS servers (on different machines for
resilience) using Samba?

Also, whislt I'm on the subject.  Suppose I have a machine with multiple
(physical) interfaces, each with a unique IP address.  When it ('s nmbd)
registers with teh WINS server does it register all its addresses?

Moreover, when the WINS server is asked for the IP address of that
machine, which one does it hand out? (DNS servers have a defined
sort-list for multi homed machines).
