inconsistent response to netbios aliases on samba 3.0.22 and 184.108.40.206E.9
I have a network of one XP pro, and 2 linux boxes (one Ubuntu606 and one Centos 4.3). Ubuntu (server606) runs samba3.0.22 and Centos (Pundit) runs 220.127.116.11E.9
When I run smbstatus on the Pundit, I see the hostnames of the computers for all the IPC$ shares, and for all other shares I see only the IP address of each machine. However, on the 606server smbstatus shows the hostnames of all the machines with a share open. Although this is not of great importance, I am trying to understand why such things happen.
Can anyone assist, please?
