Browse Master in lmhosts and can't see browse list

Browse Master in lmhosts and can't see browse list

Post by Volkmar Ei » Wed, 28 Feb 1996 04:00:00


we have the following problem. On one Class-C Net we have a Windows NT PDC on  
another Class C-Subnet we have a Win95 System connected via PPP (TCP/IP).  

Mounting volumes from the PDC works fine but the W95 System won't get the browse list
from the PDC (Must be Master Browser ?).

I entered the line

IP-Number       Name    #PRE #DOM:DOMAINNAME

in lmhosts. The DOMAINNAME contains an "&".

Is there anything missing why I don't get a browse list ?

1. Browse master, browse list, but no response to browse requests?

On 1.9.18p4 . This is a switched network with other machines on it...
basically the other machines in this workgroup *should* either be
'95 or samba servers. The three server versions on the three samba
servers are...
"Samba 1.9.18p4" "Samba 1.9.17p4"  "Samba 1.9.16p9"

Problem is that the 1.9.16p9 (we've got this for historical reasons -
NTrigue wouldnt talk to the later versions) always ends up being the
browse master, even though no other machine will talk to it.

ie: you can't get a browse list for this network, because they all
think that the 1.9.18p4 machine is the master, but that machine
refuses to hand over its browse list[1]; and the 1.9.16p9 machine
gets a browse list when I told it not to. AAAGH.



[1] It exists, it looks ok.
