enhanced browsing is yes, wins pc started first, ping goes fine (as
does ssh and other things). also waiting, say, half an hour (or more!)
doesn't help

Thanks for your reply.

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.
