Thanks.  But now another question.  When I try to query the WINS from my
192.168.26.x subnet, I don't get a successful response.  But if I run
the same query from within the same subnet (172.28.x.x), I get a
successful response.

The 2 subnets are connected via vpn.

here's the output:

[rcd at local ~]$ nmblookup -U wins.amherst.com -R dcd -d3
