i have a problem with the name resolution:

the samba server is visible to all windows clients in the network
neighborhood. and i also can access to shares on the server without any

but if i do the following:
echo "test" | smbclient -M workstation01

the answer is:
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Cannot resolve name workstation01#0x3

when i use the ip adress instead of "workstation01"

i get:
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session request failed

i also have a bind9 dns server on my server running. when i try a dns lookup
via nslookup it works in both directions.

what i do wrong? i don't want to use the lmhosts or hosts file because i do
not want to update the files when there is somthing changing in the local
