You need to put the service "zenwsimport" in either your DNS, or in every station's hostfile, and it should point to the IP address of the server that is supposed to run the import service.

Check this link for example (remove any spaces should they show up):

A good test is to try to ping wsimport service from a workstation, it should give the server's IP address. And reply, of course :-)

There are three ways for a client to find ZENWSIMPORT.

An entry in the hosts file

Found in WinNT\system32\drivers\etc directory on WinNT/2000 and Windows\ directory on Win95

Must be done on every workstation

A registry entry

Must bedone on every workstation

A DNS entry

Every workstation must have correct DNS suffix
