> WINS is to support looking up of netbios names to IP.     If DNS is
> setup, you usually don't need it for accessing network shares. If you
> have configured samba in a domain model, WINS would help clients locate
> the DC.
> For browsing between subnets you probably want the "remote browse sync"
> feature (see the man page on smb.conf.)  I haven't used it. I think it
> isn't worth the work.
> If a domain model,  a logon script usually maps drive letters to key
> shares.
