HowDoI get MS Browser Traffic (network neighborhood) to traverse WAN Links?

My current Cisco consultant says that I don't need the "IP helper-address" statements on each interface. He put in a forward prot udp statement in it place but nwo I can no longer "see" anyone in network neighborhood. I have everyone registering with a WINS server on the main office LAN - they all appear there. Don't use DHCP at remote sites.

The forwarding of netbios should be done at either routers

THis link might help!

Hi Bill

So did you managed to see the computers when the "ip helper-address" command was in place? Don't forget that having this "ip helper-address" command only forwarded on 7 default protocols (not that many to be worried about anyway). Do you have local WINS servers at the branches? By the sound of things, WINS is not passed through the WAN for replication. If I were you, I'd first find out what port number does WINS use for replication and secondly setup ACL from end-to-end to see where WINS stopped. Try it and let me know how you go at vincentn@mediamonitors.com.au

Hi,

Check whether "Enable Netbios over TCP/IP" in all workstations.

(WINS Properties)
