To configure WINS for non-DHCP clients

  • WINS servers must be manually added for each network connection that does not use DHCP. For more information, see Related Topics.


  • To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.

  • If you manually configure a list of WINS servers for the connection that later leases and obtains its IP address using DHCP, the list you configure supercedes any WINS servers returned in an options list provided by the DHCP server.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
