What I would like to do is get network browsing working. I have followed a guide here http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/tutorials/6600/1 which basically says the trick is to have a WINS server. So I have tried to set up the NAS box to be a WINS server and to be the domain master browser. On my remote machine I have set it to become the local master browser and set the wins server to the ip of the NAS box (192.168.1.2). But I can't see the remote computers in the network browser. In the nmbd log file it says:
- [2013/01/15 18:31:23, 0] nmbd/nmbd_become_lmb.c:397(become_local_master_stage2)
Samba name server MATT is now a local master browser for workgroup PATEYHOME on subnet 10.21.150.184
[2013/01/15 18:32:00, 0] nmbd/nmbd_browsesync.c:248(domain_master_node_status_fail)
Doing a node status request to the domain master browser
for workgroup PATEYHOME at IP 169.254.231.202 failed.
Cannot sync browser lists.
The remote subnet is 192.168.1.2/24
the VPN subnet is 10.21.150.184/32 assigned to a virtual adapter by the shrew client (tap0)
the IP in the error message seems to be a link-local address on eth0, so it can't reach the WINS server at 192.168.1.2 but I don't really understand what's going on.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
