Dear all 

Im using samba which comes with Solaris 9 , i want to
share unix directory with windows , samba and windows
2003 PDC are on different network , 

root at server # /usr/sfw/sbin/smbd -V
Version 2.2.12

here are the steps i follow:

-created computer account for solaris box in Windows

- because there is no wins/dns server . i put windows
PDC hostname and IP in /etc/hosts and i can ping the
Windows PDC 

- and created the following smb.conf 

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2007/05/07 16:29:48

# Global parameters
	workgroup = Domain925
	netbios name = server
	security = DOMAIN
	encrypt passwords = Yes
	password server = MYPDC
	log level = 1
        name resolve order = host bcast lmhosts wins
	hosts allow = localhost, server, 192.168.1.
	hosts deny = All

	comment = Solaris share
	path = /share
	read only = No
	guest ok = Yes

im unable to jion domain and also i try using using 

nmblookup -d4 MYPDC . and it also fails 

what i am missing please advice , how i can make it
work when they are different network , i successfully
tested when both PDC /samba are on same network
