Learn Linux, 302 (Mixed environments): NetBIOS and WINS
Naming is unusual in SMB/CIFS networks. Although modern clients
can use Internet domain names to refer to each other, older clients relied on
a Microsoft-specific system known as the Windows Internet Name
Service (WINS) server, or the NetBIOS Name Server (NBNS); the two terms
are synonymous. Configuring
Samba properly for name resolution is therefore important. So is configuring
browsing, which is the mechanism by which servers learn what shares are
available on specific servers.
