JSI Tip 3044. Windows 2000 browse list problems?

When File and Print Sharing is disabled or not installed, the Server service does NOT bind to the NetBios interface. If the computer becomes a backup browser, it is unable to share out the browse list to clients.

Any computer that is to be included in a browse list must have File and Print Sharing enabled.
