[Samba] Trouble browsing on different nets.

I believe your broadcast addresses on the linux box are set wrong. If you are using and as your IP networks, you should be using and as your broadcast addresses respectively. This may be why the Windows machines aren't picking up NetBios broadcasts from the Samba server.

  I'm not sure if this even SHOULD work. I can't find anything really useful in the documentation.

  I have a RedHat 7.3 system in the DMZ of our network, its address is, broadcast address is

  I firewall, linux based with 3 ports, the net (DMZ), the "outside world" on one port and the internal network is, broadcasting on

  So, on the internal network are Windows XP workstations, these can "search computers" and find the linux on the DMZ by name, they can connect to it if given the network address or name (the name - network address translation is done in the Windows' hosts files) and also browse the samba shares.

  BUT. Here's the problem.  The linux (Samba) server never shows up in the Windows' Network neighbourhood, which would be very good for those who aren't too familiar with networking.  Can anyone please help me out here?

  Thank you,
