Interesting. Thanks for the link, Craig, but I think it is puzzling and
interesting that the behavior of our Samba server appears to contradict
what is written in the documentation that you are referring to. I have no
idea why that would be, not being a Samba expert, but I can tell you for
certain that I do indeed have both the 'wins support = yes' and 'wins
server = <ip address>' commands in my smb.conf, and nmbd is running just
fine and everything is working.
