This is nota n issue with samba it is a name resolve issue.
Then why is Samba replying to NetBIOS broadcasts very nicely when I put it outside jail (with the same configuration)? As far as I understand Samba also provides resolving - NetBIOS resolving via its nmbd.
If you add in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts the following does all work then ipadress Machine-name where ipadress is the ipadres of the jailed samba server and machine-name is the netbios name of the jailed server. If this works then you need to check your DNS server.
Okay, let me clarify all this once again: I know that this will work for me. I also know that if I add a mapping "machine" -> "IP address" into my DNS it will work for me. I also know that if I turn on WINS support in smb.conf and then set up a WINS server on the Windows machine, it will work fine. But as you probably know, there is also a "third" way of resolving names to IP addresses - it is called NetBIOS broadcasts - from Wikipedia: "In order to connect to a computer running TCP/IP via its NetBIOS name, the name must be resolved to a network address. Today this is usually an IP address (the NetBIOS name-IP address resolution is often done by either broadcasts or a WINS Server — NetBIOS Name Server)." So it says _either by broadcasts or a WINS Server_. I don't want to use WINS server (or DNS server) for this, but NetBIOS broadcasts. And these broadcasts work just fine when my Samba 3 server is not running in a FreeBSD jail. As soon as I put it into the jail, for some reason, Samba 3 stops responding to NetBIOS broadcasts. And this is what I would like to understand - why Samba 3 stops responding to these broadcasts when it is running in a jail.
