I have a box (A) configured as a Samba server with the Wins option enabled
and the name resolution order set to "wins lmhosts bcast". On this same
box I have a /etc/lmhosts file with a resolution to a box (B) that I am
trying to reach on another subnet.
When I try to look (smbclient -L B) at B from A it won't find it because
the address translation is not in /var/locks/samba/wins.dat.
Fair enough, but why is it not then trying the /etc/lmhosts lookup. I
realise the bcast won't work as it is across a different subnet.
If I try smbclient -L 192.168.129.129 then that will work.
