No. DNS doesn't help in this situation. But anyhow, DNS is reqired for Samba to act as WINS server which could help. Can't remember exactly if wins itself was enough to enable dial-up browsing. I did the broadcast bimap with ipf (Darren Reeds IPFilter) (like "bimap tun0 192.168.1.255/32 -> 192.168.0.255/32" for ipnat.conf) -Harry > > I have no idea how to bimap a broadcast address along subnets!!!
