Can I use a single Samba server for multiple domains?


And thank you in advance! I'm trying to find out if I can replace the WINS/PROXY server (Windows NT4 with WINS and Windows proxy server installed) in our company to a linux computer with Squid and Samba.

At the moment we have a routed network with multiple subnets and multiple domains. Lets say for example that we have the networks, and in use. And in all of these networks we have their own NT4 server acting as PDC and the networks are in their own domain (DOMAIN1), (DOMAIN2) and (DOMAIN3). All the machines in the whole network use the same WINS/PROXY server for example (PROXY). Network browsing etc, everything is working perfectly with the NT4 WINS/PROXY server and I can use NetBIOS names to ping computers and so on.

My question is: Can I do the same with a Linux server with for example Squid and Samba?

Best regards,
