    WINS Service on Novell 5 Server

    Locked

    Does anyone know if there is such a Service on a Novell Server?
    Remember, the WINS is a Windows NT Server Service which takes care of NetBIOS Name to IP resolution.

      For DHCP 3.x on a NetWare 5 server,
      Launch the DNS/DCHP Java Configuration Utility
      Go to the DHCP tab
      Select the “DHCP Options Table”.
      Click on “Add” and you will be asked to provide the option code of 44 for NetBios Name Server

      hope that helps

        Angela, thanks for the comments.
        What you answered was already in place before I posted the question.
        Note that I mention the WINS service, not the NetBIOS Name Server lease information.
        WINS is the Service on a Windows NT Server that monitorpackets to create its own DB/table of Name to IP Address resolution to lessen the overall broadcast messages on the network and easy the finding of computers on a network.
        My question is: “Is there such a Service as a WINS Service on a NW5 Server?”
