     LMHOSTS(5)	     UNIX System V (19 November	2002)	    LMHOSTS(5)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  lmhosts - The	Samba NetBIOS hosts file

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  lmhosts is the  Samba	NetBIOS	name to	IP address mapping

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This file is part of the  Samba suite.

	  lmhosts is the Samba NetBIOS name to IP address mapping
	  file.	It is very similar to the /etc/hosts file format,
	  except that the hostname component must correspond to	the
	  NetBIOS naming format.

     FILE FORMAT    [Toc]    [Back]
	  It is	an ASCII file containing one line for NetBIOS name.
	  The two fields on each line are separated from each other by
	  white	space. Any entry beginning with	'#' is ignored.	Each
	  line in the lmhosts file contains the	following information

	  o IP Address - in dotted decimal format.

	  o NetBIOS Name - This	name format is a maximum fifteen
	    character host name, with an optional trailing '#'
	    character followed by the NetBIOS name type	as two
	    hexadecimal	digits.

	    If the trailing '#'	is omitted then	the given IP address
	    will be returned for all names that	match the given	name,
	    whatever the NetBIOS name type in the lookup.

	  An example follows :

	  # Sample Samba lmhosts file.

	  Contains three IP to NetBIOS name mappings. The first	and
	  third	will be	returned for any queries for the names
	  "TESTPC" and "SAMBASERVER" respectively, whatever the	type
	  component of the NetBIOS name	requested.

	  The second mapping will be returned only when	the "0x20"
	  name type for	a name "NTSERVER" is queried. Any other	name
	  type will not	be resolved.

	  The default location of the lmhosts file is in the same
	  directory as the smb.conf(5)>	file.

     VERSION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This man page	is correct for version 2.2 of the Samba	suite.

     AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The original Samba software and related utilities were
	  created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by	the
	  Samba	Team as	an Open	Source project similar to the way the
	  Linux	kernel is developed.

	  The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The
	  man page sources were	converted to YODL format (another
	  excellent piece of Open Source software, available at
	  <URL:ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/>) and updated for the
	  Samba	2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to
	  DocBook for Samba 2.2	was done by Gerald Carter
