Only help if I stop samba, delete record from wins.dat, start samba and repeat from client nbtstat -RR.

I am not undestand why WINs on Samba not re-register names if client change IP.
That it is possible to make that function of a re-registration of the names NetBIOS worked?
Excuse me for bad English.
