WINS (Windows Internet Name Service)
The service WINS resolves NetBios names into IP addresses and is therefore an elementary component of a Windows network. Given this fact, this service should already be installed on the Windows Server located in the network.
This is how you install WINS (Windows Internet Name Service)
1 Click on “Start | Settings | Control Panel.”
Double click on “Software” and then select “Add/Remove Windows Components“.
2 In the wizard for Windows components, select “Components | Network Services | Details”.
3 Activate the checkbox “WINS (Windows Internet Name Service)” in the dialog field “Network Services”.
4 Then click on "OK".
The WINS server can update the resource entries in the DNS server.
A more extensive configuration of the WINS is not necessary.
