Nothing on this? While googling I've seen questions about this issue asked
several years ago, but not lately. And I haven't found any exhaustive answer
to this :(
More about the issue - if I nmblookup domain, I get quite a lot of answers,
but not from the server itself (192.168.1.31):
$ nmblookup mydomain
querying mydomain on 192.168.1.255
The firewall is not the issue as I see from tcpdump that broadcast queries
to port 137 reach the server.
