I want to enable the wins support on my Samba box, but as I read in
multiple places it should be avoided to have 2 WINS-servers on one

How can I "scan" for an existing WINS-server? Does it have a distinct
NETBIOS resource name? CouldnŽt find something in my "Using

I am pretty sure that there is no WINS-server on my net, just want to
know it for sure.

Thank you,
