Hi,I'm wondering if anyone has run into this but I found out that I can't use Window's VPN connection and logon to Samba using Aliases.  I can log into the server using the server's main NetBIOS name but I can't use any of the aliases.  Whilst inside the network the aliases work fine.Any ideas on how to get around this?# Samba config file created using SWAT
