My setup is: samba-3.0.10-1.4E on RHEL4-AS, smb.conf:
workgroup = blah
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
map to guest = Bad User
logon drive = z:
logon path =
logon script = test-logon.bat
security = user
encrypt passwords = yes
server string = blah Samba Domain
netbios name = blah
add machine script = /usr/sbin/useradd -c Machine -d /var/lib/nobody
-s /bin/false %m
domain master = yes
domain logons = yes
local master = yes
preferred master = yes
wins support = yes
hosts allow = xxxx...
os level = 65
log level = 3
max log size = 0
log file = /var/log/samba/mxxx-samba.log
I have a similar problem, except I'm not going through a VPN, I'm in a
university WAN. My samba PDC cannot get the browse list of any domains
outside of my subnet. I've gotten some responses saying you should just be
able to see the browse list no problem, others saying they can't see the
browse list. Documentation on this is terrible. Commands I've used to
troubleshoot are: findsmb, nmblookup and smbclient -L, but all they tell
me is what I already know: my nmbd cannot get the browse list from any
domains outside of my own subnet yet still in the WAN. Interestingly, I
have an NT 4 PDC on the same subnet which can do exactly that: it see's
every domain in the WAN. In all other respects samba PDC works perfectly,
but if I can't fix this browse list issue, we can't replace our windows
PDC with samba.
If you find the solution, please let me know. I'll do the same. If you
find any additional troublshooting tools, please let me know.
