we setup one and ONLY one pc to be a WINS server....and then point EVERY
pc on ALL networks to it. we do NOT use "remote announce". I assume
"enhanced browsing = yes" ,the hidden default. Ping from one pc to
another to test network. Start wins pc first to speed things
along...restart every pc so they register with wins...will take a little
time to stabilise...it should just work. The only weakness we found is
only one wins-server for all domains/networks.
