I have used the command ksetup /domain
Now at least it contacts the KDC otherwise it only tries NTLM.
But as you said, it tries to obtain a ticket for
cifs/name_entered_in_browser. No matter if the name is netbios or IP
And my problem now is that it doesnt try to do a dns resolution before the
netbios resolution. So, I can't use the FQDN in the Windows brower and
obtain the correct service ticket.

How can I activate dns resolution for smb protocol on my Windows client ?
(DNS works for the other protocols).

I am using XP SP2 under VMWare.

Thank you
