CIFS  server name is not being broadcast

Question asked by holodigm on Feb 15, 2011
I am trying to configure CIFS on a Linux box. I'm using the default settings and using Wireshark to monitor network traffic. I do not see the server name being broadcast on the network. All firewall and security settings are off.

Is it necessary to setup passthru as part of the authentication chain in order for the broadcast to occur? I'm trying to bring things up one piece at a time so that I understand the settings. However, if there are interdependencies between subsystems this approach might not work.

Thanks for any tips and pointers.
