I loose hope to be able to obtain the NETBIOS name of
a Win95 box using the following command :
nmblookup -A ipaddress
Some of my user are using laptops and are connecting
the network by a remote lan access.
The IP address is attributed by the RLA supplier.
I included in the login process (telnet) of our
Administrative AIX server a NETBIOS name check of the
calling machine. If the NETBIOS name if not in the
list of allowed boxes the server does not grant the
If a Winnt box try to login, I don't have any issue.
But for Win95 !!!!
The version of Samba we use is 22.214.171.124.
Below a part of the smb.conf.
