DHCP and WINS

By robin.kirmeier ·
I have set up a NT DHCP server with the following entries.
003 Router --- 192.168.1.254
044 WINS/NBNS --- 192.168.1.20
046 WINS/NBT Node Type --- 0x8

How come I do not get the the WINS server entry on the client machine. Other infomation (IP, Router) show up fine... I am using WINIPCFG to verify this information..
FYI: It also states that the client Node Type is Broadcast (bnode) which should be (hnode) according to 046 entry..

Thank you,
Robin

Well, I'm not sure why your WINS server isn't showing up? Have you tried to release and renew your IP lease on the client? (The info might not be current?) Also, you may want to consider making client machines Pnode if you are using a WINS serverto reduce broadcast traffic (unless you are using an LMHosts file).

check the following:

1- Do both your client and server has TCP/IP installed?
2- Is your client setup with "gething IP from DHCP server"?
3- Is your client setup with "using DHCP WINS"?
4- Is your DHCP server scope activated?
5- Is your DHCP server's DHCP services running?
6- Trying ping your DHCP server from client. If can't, check NIC, cable, network segmenting.

BTW, is there only one DHCP server in the LAN? Might want to check if there is another one.

Hope this helps!

I work in a Novell and NT mixed environment and found that the PC's were configured for IP but the PC still dispayed the Broadcast node type. It turned out that my resolution was not all of our pc's were configured with the Microsoft client. Once the Microsoft client was installed the system change from the Bnode to Hnode. I would beleive this is because Wins is specific to Microsoft. Also a Microsoft IP book will explay that there are several differences of node types and how to change this in the registry.

Good luck,

There is a setting under network\tcpip properties on the wins configuration tab to use dhcp for wins resolution.
