OK.. if it is running inside your jail it doesnt respond to WINS broadcasts (request for NETBIOS Names.. oi, who is Machine on this subnet???), if it is not running in your jail, it is.
I wouldn't say "WINS broadcasts" but NetBIOS broadcasts, yes. "Machine" is jailed Samba 3 server - I want it to be accessible from Windows machines via \\Machine. But it is not unless I put it out of jail (or turn on WINS in smb.conf and enter the WINS server IP into Windows clients). Windows machines don't have the WINS server set - I don't want to use WINS server capability of Samba (nor of any other server on the network).
So, what are your settings for master (local, domain and wins)?
wins support = no local master = yes domain master = yes preferred master = yes
can you do a ping to machine? Can it be resolved?

Can you connect smbclient //ipadres?
You mean \\192.168.15.201. Yes.
Do you see the smb client listening on the machines virtual ip?
You mean smb server - yes: root smbd 1436 18 tcp4 192.168.15.201:445 *:* root smbd 1436 19 tcp4 192.168.15.201:139 *:* root nmbd 1430 6 udp4 192.168.15.201:137 *:* root nmbd 1430 7 udp4 192.168.15.201:138 *:* root nmbd 1430 8 udp4 192.168.15.201:137 *:* root nmbd 1430 9 udp4 192.168.15.201:138 *:*
in case the above work for you it is all about name resolution. # man smbclient Read the first paragraph of servicename on servername resolution.
I know it is all about network resolution. But the question is how to convince a jailed Samba to reply to NetBIOS broadcasts. I can't find this in any manual.
