I have a large network with linux (or OpenBSD) routers which all
run samba servers. There are also win95,98,2k and XP clients. I
didn't completely understand BROWSING-Config.txt. Eg.:
(clients1) --- (ROUTER1) --- (clients2) --- (ROUTER2) --- (client3)
(ROUTER3) --- (clients4)
How should I set those routers? I hope one of them should be DMB,
others LMB. But I don't know which combinaction of config paramters
should I use:
which one should be the WINS server? should be also the other
routers WINS servers?
(which options? wins support, wins server...)
should I use remote browse sync and/or remote announce? On
which routers I should set those and how?
Why Win2k and WinXP refuse to accept samba master browsers? They
sometimes accept their browse lists but when i do "smbclient -L
winxpclient", it always says that IT (itself, the winxp client) is
the master browser...
