I am a Samba newbie, setting up Samba on a FreeBSD machine in a Windows
(2K) environment [or the other way around] - all in a small LAN behind a

DSL router / firewall. The machines recognize each other in that I can
ping to both in either directions using either IP #'s or hostnames. On
the PC's I am using LMHOST , no local WINS or local DNS (there are DNS's

on the WAN side of the router/gateway), & /etc/hosts on the BSD
platform. OK - so far, so good, -  however on running "smbclient -L
hostname -N" from the command line on the BSD

the following was generated ==>

          added interface ip= bcast=
          Anonymous login successful
          Domain=[DWORKS] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN

Obviously something is wrong w/ my setup but I can't tell what,
hopefully some one will recognize and advise.

PS:  I have virtually all the services & protocols installed on the
PC's, TCP/IP, Clients for Microsoft etc. Hope I have provided sufficient

info for diagnosis.
