Why you use "remote announce"?

Are all client in the same workgroup/domain? If so, use "wins server =
<ipaddressofwinsserver>" instead.

Take a look in "man smb.conf" to the keywords

	remote announce
	wins server
	wins proxy
	wins support

and last, but not least "BROWSING.txt" and "BROWSING-Config.txt".
