This is just my understanding and may not be correct. First, you will
need to be able to masq the SMB protocol, and I'm not sure this can be
done. If so then for machine B to see tha other windows machine in
network neighborhood you will need to setup the lmhosts file on B
(i forget where it is exactly) which is similar in usage to
/etc/hosts in that it tells B where other machines are.
