Read it all. Its all clear now.

So, I finally make it work perfectly.

My PDC at in 192.168.0.x network acts now also as a WINS server.

The foreign windows 2K uses gateway to connect 
to the internet provider. This provider carry on MPLS VPN functionality.

The foreign PC has as 1ary DNS (Bind) and 212.... as 2nd DNS 
(providers' firts DNS). It has ALSO as WINS server.

My provider had to unlock both and routers: 
they lock NetBIOS requests in default mode!

Now the foreign PC is authenticated by the PDC, and ca work with its 
personal and common samba shares

Weeepeeeeeee :o)

I promise I'll give money to samba.org when I'll get rich one day :-)

Finaly, I'm writing an article to put in my website to detail all to be 
done when creating such a VPN with Samba in the middle.

Will post here when doc is done and published in my site.
