Naming a Win PC workgroup on a LAN
What is the correct way to name a Win PC workgroup on a LAN? Seems any
non-spaced word is acceptable. Now, the network setup wizard provides
options for a domain name "name.dns" (Business connection), if not
chosen the only Net ID would be the workgroup name, presumably ok for
peer to peer interactions in a home LAN.
Now if the system is to be networked with UNIX machines, FreeBSD and
others how should this be best handled?
I have a system so set up, using just the workgroup name and using the
same name on the UNIX machines, no DNS extensions. However, the system
seems to have some instabilities, sometimes it works fine and other
times it doesn't => with responses of "Mixedgroup is not accessible. The
network name cannot be found." in a Windows Explorer Dialog Box.
