Apologies in advance: This is not very linux-related except for the fact I
didn't know it was happening until I read the nmb logs on my linux box.
I have a win95 client that _constantly_ sends out requests for _DNS_
resolution of the local workgroup, netbios computer name and netbios user
to the linux wins server. It's probably broadcasting to the entire
network, but I have no way of knowing if the other win95 machine is
getting dns/wins requests.
Does anyone know how to make it stop doing this. I've mucked about with
every setting in the dns/wins panel under '95s tcp/ip configuration panel
to no avail.
The linux box is the browse master and wins server for the network. The
client machine points to a different machine for dns so the linux box
should never get any DNS requests from the client.
Dazed and confused,
