hosts: files wins
Wins hostnames are NOT resolved and on console is written:
ping: NSSWITCH(nss_load_module): wins, Undefined symbol "nss_module_register"
/usr/local/lib/nss_wins.so.1 really doesn't contain any text "nss_module_register". I think that this is required by NSSWITCH to work correctly.

I think you are the first one, who ever noticed it :) Which shows how useful this module is :)
I can try to fix it, but I need a beta tester, as I don't use wins in my environment. Do you actually use it or tried nss_wins out of curiousity?

I used it on my home LAN.
But now I have no possibility to test it. I am sorry.
Is there anyone fixed the problem since then?
This problem make my FreeBSD not able to ping the winPCs.
I am using FreeBSD on vm and only running a simple MS network without WINS.
If there is any patch, I would be willing to help testing it.

Ok, great! I'll try to spend some time over weekend to come with the patch. Thanks for volountering!
Really thanks a lot.
Although I have only a little programming knowledge, hope that I can help. :)
Now it works for me.
I made new installation with FreeBSD 6.2 + Samba from ports.
Now I can ping my other Windows PC's on my net without having them in my DNS.
