   Hi all, after scrounging through the archives for a good while, I didn't 
come up with anything similar to my trouble.  I have a VPN setup that 
consists for 2 linux boxes running freeswan to make a tunnel between 2 
subnets, the atypical example of a vpn.  I am adding a windows 2000 l2tp 
server for road worrier use.  Everything is setup and running perfectly 
except for the fact that the remote road worriers dont seem to get their 
names listed in the workgroup on the master browser, (Samba 2.2.4).  The 
Win2k server assigns ip addresses in the range of, and the 
master browers/WINS server is on, everything is assigned 
appropriatly, and all the computers point back to the right IP for the WINS 
server.  I can browser the workgroup from the Road worries fine, but the 
netbios name of the road worrier never appears in the workgroup.  I'm not 
completely sure if this is an issue with the Win2k server or something the 
samba server is not doing, if anyone has any ideas it would be a great help,
