Hi Collen thanks for even replying....

I have 3 subnets. Each box is running Samba and are connected to eachother 
via IPSEC tunnels.

Trying to follow the docs, I have set the "server" as a domain master, prefd 
master and local master and set it to be a WINS server. The two "remotes" 
are set as local masters and preferred masters and with WINS poiting to the 
singe WINS server on the "server" side. They are all set to the same 
workgroup. There are Windows clients behind these boxes.

WINS appears to be functioning correctly, it indeed holds the names of 
machines on all 3 subnets and I am able to access any machine by hostname 
from any machine.

I have verified that there are no Windows workstations becoming DMB's.

I cannot seem to get the browse lists to callate however. The DMB and LMB 
announcements seem to be OK and the syncs initiate however there are always 
0 records returned! The browse.dat files on each box contain only the 
hostnames on that particular subnet when my understanding is that these 
should collate.

Thanks for any help!

Here is part of nmbd log on box (DMB):
