Samba Nmblookup wins

7 Feb

Netbios aliases set in smb.conf should be viewable by the Master Browser.

The Master Browser will run the nmbd daemon and read from wins.dat file the netbios names it currently knows about.

You should be able to look this up using nbtstat on Windows or nmblookup on Unix.

Check which WINS server you are talking to using ipconfig /all on Windows.
