I have setup my Samba server as a WINS server using the wins support = yes
My remote network can see the Samba server at our head office fine.
I have also setup the WINS setting on my PC (W2K Pro box) to point to the IP
address of my Samba server.
When I do a nmblookup -R -U <IP address of WINS server> <name of my PC> on
my Samba server I get this reponse;
querying pc1 on 10.1.1.251
wins_srv_died(): Could not mark WINS server 10.1.1.251 down.
Address not found in server list.
name_query failed to find name pc1
However, if I use the same command a query the Samba server I get this
querying felix on 10.1.1.251
Why isn't my Samba server storing the NetBIOS name of my PC?
BTW, I am using Samba 2.2.7 supply by RH on a RH 7.3 box.
