Network Properties -> TCP/IP -> Wins
is set to use dhcp settings for NetBIOS.

Contents of lmhosts on the samba server (PDC):  conan  SJSA  postie

Samba version 2.2.8a (Yeah, I know; I've 3.0.23 on a test box.)
Running on Freebsd 4.5 (The test box is 6.1)

Won't swear that the above is accurate.  As the entire IT

my school, I'm very much interrupt driven.

Obviously I've not tried every combination yet.

Go to a client, log in, run ipconfig.
Client has correct WINS server.

What am I missing?
