The nodes don't have any problems finding or communicating with the
server, the server just does not want to provide data. I have three
distinct networks that are interconnected by routers. Each segment has a
local DHCP/DNS/WINS/etc server that assigns H-Node WINS options to the
local clients, and in addition the broadcasts on 137/138 are also
forwarded from each segment to the WINS servers on the other segments.
What this means is clients try to resolve a name by asking the local
server, then will broadcast a query which is forwarded to the other
servers, which they answer. If a TCP session is required (such as fetching
a browse list via port 139) then that also happens as expected, once the
client knows the server to contact. This works for local and remote nodes
