    I already used samba in network with more than one segment and never 
needed any "remote ..." option too, it worked even through a VPN. The 
samba books says to use that options when more than one WINS server are 
used, for example. Using the same WINS server in both networks, the name 
registration is already made in unicast, and it should pass through a 
    Have you looked inside wins.dat and browse.dat on the samba server 
to see if is everything there? You said that you have already tested 
with nblookup (maybe looking there doesnt make sense then), but I think 
its easyer to see what your WINS server has to offer, what are the 
available resources and if theres any name that shouldnt be registered 
there that way.
    nbtstat -r, on the client shows that the names are really beeing 
resolved by the name server (WINS)?
