WINS Configuration

On the client side, there are three options available. They are:

  1. Disable WINS resolution. This is valid when WINS is not required.

  2. 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.


  3. 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

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.
