10.3: Potential Windows server browsing fix
Authored by: joshpearce on Nov 20, '03 12:46:10PM

i didn's see anywhere that you changed the settings on a windows machine, so I may be confused, but how is it possible that when your mac is asleep, windows networks will not operate properly. By this I mean will windows machines be able to browse eachother after this hint is implemented?

10.3: Potential Windows server browsing fix
Authored by: Anonymous on Nov 20, '03 01:20:14PM

If you leave the settings on the Windows machines at their factory default, when your Mac is serving as the DMB, then when your Mac goes to sleep the Windows machines will lose the ability to browse the network (connected servers will remain accessible) for a few minutes until another Windows machine is collectively designated to serve as the new DMB.
