Answering my own question... It worked.
But now I have another problem.
I've made the changes indicated on the HOWTO, to both smb.conf and
When I set the wins server at smb.conf to be the address of the samba4wins
server, the samba server isn't able to find the Domain master browser
anymore, which is in a different subnet.

In log.nmbd

[2006/04/13 09:48:19, 0]
  Unable to find the Domain Master Browser name INE<1b> for the workgroup
  Unable to sync browse lists in this workgroup.

But with ldbsearch.

[root at si-lnx01 root]# ldbsearch -H /var/lib/samba4wins/wins.ldb type=0x1B

# record 5
dn: name=INE,type=0x1B
distinguishedName: name=INE,type=0x1B
type: 0x1B
name: INE
objectClass: winsRecord
recordType: 3
recordState: 0
nodeType: 3
isStatic: 0
expireTime: 20060507083646.0Z
versionID: 950556

Any ideas?
Anything I'm missing at smb.conf?

Best regards,
