WINS Client Configuration

Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) is to NetBIOS names what DNS is to domain names — a central mapping of host names to network addresses.  See more about WINS service at UB.

If you would like to be able to reference machines by name outside your local subnet, configure the WINS tab in your TCP/IP properties page with any of the above addresses. Mix and match the addresses for the best redundancy.
