Event ID:8015 & 8033

Hi,
I just recently install a PC with NT3.5, after installed and configured suscessfully (I guess!) and reboot the machine and then relogin I check the Event Viewer, I see the following two events:
8015: The brower has forced an election on network \Device\Nbf_Elnkii1 because a Windows NT Server (or Domain master) brower is started.
8033: The brower has forced an election on network \Device\Nbf_Elnkii1 because a master brower was stopped.

Can anyone tell me what these two mean? Do they mean something wrong with my NT setup? (I have only on NT set as a master controller and with one domain and tried to connect to a PC with WIN 95 by TCP/IP through coax ethernet with 3COM EtherLink II (3C503) Cards.)
I am new to NT networking.

Here is the way NT performs its network browsing (where the list comes from that is displayed when you pull up the file manager and see a list of machines).

The list is maintained by a Domain Master Browser, which is elected in the following order:
-PDC
-BDC(s)
-Domain Server
-NT Workstation
-95 Workstation
-WfWg 3.11 WS

Any of the above machines that are configured to automatically become the master browser (if needed) will force an election on the network, with the above priority list determining who wins.

That is the way things work in a NetBEUI network (single subnet), in a segmented network (routed TCP/IP, etc.), there is an additional step.  Each subnet has a master browser for its subnet, and then the master browser for each subnet forwards their browse list to the Domain Master Browser.

The browse list is maintained individual for each different protocol, so if you have more than one protocol installed on the server (or on a WS), you should see one of the above for each protocol.

I didn't understand the last part of your question, are you having problems connecting to the server from NT, or are you just wondering if there is a problem?

Respond and let me know if you need more info....
