can you ping hte wins server from your linux box?
How is your machine configured?  Are you the local master browser and the
domain master browser?  Do either you or the WiNS server have remote
announce set? does browsing on a Windows machine on your local subnet show
the linux box as well as the other work groups?  If not, then the two are
not communicating..

I am kind of like you.  I am having limited success with this on my
networks.  However, I suspect that you probably don't have control over the
WINS server.  Right?  Or is it a Windoze box?


P.S. - I suppose you have already looked at the browsing.txt file?
