<listitem>
<para>The Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS-Discovery) is used to browse the local network and discover workgroups, domains and hosts. This is useful, if your network neighborhood is dominated by servers with modern Windows versions. If you use this option, there should be no need to force Samba's client library to use the SMB protocol version 1.0 for searching for workgroups and domains.</para>

</term>
<listitem>
<para>The DNS Service Discovery (DNS-SD) is used to browse the local network and discover servers that provide shared SMB resources. The discovered domains correspond to the local DNS domains (&eg; named LOCAL) and most likely not the ones defined in the network neighborhood. However, this does not influence the browsing. If you use this option, there is no need to force Samba's client library to use the SMB protocol version 1.0 for searching for workgroups and domains.</para>

</term>
<listitem>
<para>Force Samba's client library to use the SMB protocol version 1.0 for browsing workgroups and domains. You should use this option only as last resort, because the SMB protocol version 1.0 is unsafe and has been disabled in newer Samba and Windows versions. However, if you have trouble discovering workgroups and domains in your network neighborhood, you might want to consider to switch this setting on. If you are using DNS Service Discovery (DNS-SD) or Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS-Discovery), and those are working for you, you do not need it.</para>

</term>
<listitem>
<para>Set the minimal and maximal SMB protocol version that is used by Samba's client library to browse the network neighborhood. This will overwrite the settings in the smb.conf file. Normally, you do not need to use this option, because the right protocol versions should be negotiated between the client and the server while establishing a connection. Please note that this setting might not be appropriate to make the discovering of workgroups and domains work while keeping undisturbed connectivity to servers. Use DNS Service Discovery (DNS-SD) or Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS-Discovery) for domain and workgroup lookups instead.</para>
