I have a simple home network setup on the 192.168.15.x subnet.  To date I have just been backing up items on the backup server itself and that has been working fine.  The backuppc server has a static IP address.  I now want to add a couple of laptops to the backup but according to backuppc it can never locate these laptops.  I've gone through the documentation about nmblookup using the -A or -B options but nothing seems to work :(  At a loss as to how to proceed now.  The laptops will always be set to DHCP so I can't locate them by IP address.

 

My home network is basically a windows Workgroup and I was planning on access my laptops via smb.  From my backuppc server I can see both laptops on the workgroup.

 

Any help, guidance would be much appreciated.
