Support Browse Lists for Multiple Domains (Windows NT/2000/XP)

By default, the Computer Browser service only maintains a list of servers on the local network. To allow clients to browse computers on other domains you may need to add the other domains names using this tweak.

This tweak can be easily applied using WinGuides Tweak Manager.

Open your registry using REGEDT32 (Windows NT/2000) or Regedit (Windows XP) and find the key below.

Modify or create a new REG_MULTI_SZ value called "OtherDomains" and edit this value to add the names of the domains you want to browse.

Restart Windows for the change to take effect.
