Configuring the WINS Service

This section provides information about configuring the SMB server as a client to the WINS service. Configuring the WINS service enables the system to use the NetBIOS name service.

If you are integrating an SMB server in an environment that has a WINS server, you can use WINS for name resolution.

For information about excluding IP addresses from WINS resolution, see Excluding IP Addresses From WINS Name Resolution.

For information about configuring other applicable services, see Configuring the SMB Server – Process Overview.
