Situation
Three physical seperate Subnet A(Mainoffice), B, C connecting together through Cisco router (A-->B, A-->C).

Theroy behind
(real example)
WITH WINS.
Case 1)MY COMPUTER CAN browser and map network drive of SERVERS IN SUBNET B but not Servers in Subnet C(such Servers can be found in network neighbours but prompt for unable to find computer or it shares when try to connect to.However after using Net Use + IP address{Servers in subnet C} + Share Name to map a drive.
Then I can browser the same servers, it have no problem to connect or map drive.The connection drop after restart my computer)
After Check with Net use | More command

The connection map before become without no drive assigned but the connection still here
(Mostly the server name is ABC_DB. The server in subnet is set to "ABC EE" with a space beside. Is this the cause?

I have check to ensure that all the server with IP and WINS configured properly
Some computers (no entries in both lmhosts and host file)and all NT servers in subnet dont have this problem (able to browser and map drive through Network Neighbour)

I have tried to keyin the value of
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (IP address of server in subnetC) Server name(obtained by ping -a XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX) #Pre #DOM:domainname but dont work

QUESTIONS. What criteria /setup procedures will introduces such different

check your WINS synch, if needed make static entries in the wins servers for bdc/pdc.

If you can net use an IP, but not a netbios name then its sure to be wins related.

If all appears to be ok, on the wins server that isnt accepting the connections, delete all wins entries, and let it rebuild the list.

just to help them make the connection, add entries in lmhost for servers across the wan.
