Cannot see Samba server on different network

I remember reading that to support multiple subnets each subnet needs to have an
local master browser on it which then talks to the PDC. I recall something about
this being a MS design spec to sell more NT machines.

It also seems possible if you use multiple interfaces with samba. Experience
would say that this means two network cards, but I could very well be wrong.

I also seems that you could achieve what you want with WINS.

Sorry just sharing some of my knowledge from setting up samba last week, don't
take any of it as truth. - Eric
