I see now.  I went back and read your whole thread.  Just like Craig has
said to you in the last mail it will not work as you expect.  There has
to be a helper or Wins server on each of the SNs to contact the Master
Browser.  That's is the only I am aware of doing it the right way also.

You could pass them off of a DHCP Helper server but I suspect that's
beyond what you want.  The thing is the network is a Ad-Hoc Network and
there hard to deal with with out proper prior planing.
