On the client side, there
are three options available. They are:
- Disable WINS resolution.
This is valid when WINS is not required.
- Enable WINS resolution. When
asking for a WINS server, you are required to enter a primary
and secondary WINS server. In the event there is only
one, use the same IP address in the secondary field as you use
in the primary field.
Make note that you can create a Scope option. This feature grants
the capability of segregating a group of computers that
only allows them to communicate with their own group. Of interest
is the fact that the Scope ID is case sensitive. The Scope is appended
to the NetBIOS name and gives TCP/IP the ability to carry
Windows NetBIOS TCP/IP names. Without WINS, this
is not possible, as there was no Bill Gates when was created.
- Use DHCP for WINS Resolution.
This option binds the workstation query to the DHCP server
for both primary and secondary WINS server. As
you will see later in this document, just as the WINS server maps numeric
IP addresses to host names, the DHCP server maps numeric IP addresses
to hardware (MAC) addresses.
WINS is the name resolution service in Microsoft NT.
Remember that the WINS address is a TCP/IP address that points to a WINS server. This server must have the WINS database available. The configuration tab is found in the TCP/IP protocol.
