Hi All

Could someone please advise me on the following log entries. I am using
Samba to serve a 3 windows clients but noticed the following in my log files
(still learning linux and discovered log files recently). The firewall lists
this message every few seconds and it appears to relate to Samba and more
specifically the nmbd daemon. Samba is working so it purely the log file
filling up with these entries that concerns me most. Secondly I tried using
nmblookup -M SERVER and it tries the address 192.168.0.255 as the
"nameserver" whereas the SAMBA server is 192.168.0.10. Samba is setup to be
the wins server.

Many thanks

Nigel Gaylard
