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.
