I've been trying to set up a new CIFS mount, and I was trying to use the Webmin [...] button to browse for servers. First of all, I think the module settings aren't very clear where it says "Server to request browse list from". In my case, I needed to specify the netbios master browser. I don't think most users would understand what it's asking for or how to get it to work. To find it, I had to run "nmblookup -M". Since the master browser can change at random depending on what machines are connected, I think it would be good to add a module config option for something like "Look for servers in this workgroup:" and then automatically run "nmblookup -M WORKGROUPNAME" for the user when they click the [...] browse for servers button, and then retrieve a server list automatically from whatever server happens to be the master browser at that moment.
Thanks a lot for Webmin! It's a fantastic tool.
