In my opninion, You need to have one WINS only. In case of disconnected,
the Local Master Browser should take of name resolving.

Subject: [Samba] Two WINS servers on different subnets


If I connect two LANs (on different subnets) and want to use windows 

filesharing, I need a WINS server right? Can I have one server on both 

subnets and make them "talk to each other" ? The problem is that the

networks are connected through a VPN tunnel and I don't want to place a

WINS server on just one of them in case the VPN tunnel is lost. I want 

the subnets to work normal when they're not connected and when they got

connection they should work like one big network. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance
