thanks herb. actually, i know exactly who is registered as dmb with
wins. it is the old ip address of my host. i ran the command you
suggested and verified that this is in fact the truth. it does show my
old ip address as being registered as #1b.
the old ip address is no longer alive (i've verified this) and there is no
way it is still defending itself as dmb. that is what really puzzles me.
