DNS Server WINS NetBIOS Initialization

Updated: November 13, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The NetBIOS protocol was the principal network protocol that early versions of Windows used. In conjunction with Windows Internet Name Service (WINS), NetBIOS supports a simple, nonhierarchical naming system. You can configure DNS servers and clients to support NetBIOS and WINS as a supplement to the Domain Name System (DNS) protocol.
