Setup NETBIOS on Ubuntu

It is nice to access a computer with knowing its IP address. Windows broadcast NETBIOS on port 139 to access a computer by its name. Similar can be applied on ubuntu. So here we go:
  1. Edit /etc/nsswitch.conf and change the line:
    hosts: files dns
    to this:
    hosts: files wins dns
  2. Install winbind
    sudo apt-get install winbind
Thats it!
