Sorry that was a typo, on the Slave it's not commented out and has the
IP of the master.

They are on the same subnet, and right next to each other actually.

Thus spake daniel.jarboe at custserv.com (daniel.jarboe at custserv.com):

> Well, commenting out the wins server=<IP Of Master> line can't help.
