I fixed the problem.  By simply switching the order of ip's on the
machine placing the internal first and external second... fixed the
problem.  No need to do this before the upgrade.  

Anyway thanks!

Hello All!

I have Samba Version 2.999+3.0.alpha20-2.  Just recently I tried to join
the domain using the Win2k Wizard with no success.  This functionality
worked in the previous version of Samba V. 2.2.3a.  If I'm on the same
subnet though, it works like a charm.  The error I receive is the

"The following error occurred validating the name "mydomain"
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"

Here is the ip info for the SAMBA server:
Ip =
Mask =
Gateway =

Here is the ip info of one of the machines on a different subnet:
Ip =
Mask =
Gateway =
Wins =

The samba server is able to ping the client ip, and vice-versa.

I'll be happy to post my smb.conf file if anyone is interested.
