Windows Internet Name Server, a network service for Microsoft networks that provides Windows computers with Internet numbers for specified NetBIOS names, facilitating browsing and intercommunication over TCP/IP networks.
Windows Internet Name Service. Allows clients on different IP subnets to dynamically resolve addresses, register themselves, and browse the network without sending broadcasts. Clients send unicast packets to the WINS server at a well-known address. For compatibility with older Microsoft Networking clients, however, broadcast name resolution is still turned on by default, even when WINS is also configured. Also see DHCP and DNS, and Microsoft Technet: DNS & DNS defined and DHCP and DHCP defined and WINS & WINS defined. (Triple click to get Back.)
Part of the Microsoft Windows NT Server, WINS manages the association of workstation names and locations with IP addresses, without the user or administrator having to be involved in each configuration change.
Windows Internet Name Service. A name resolution service that resolves Windows networking computer names to IP addresses in a routed environment. A WINS server handles name registrations, queries, and releases. See also IP address.
Windows Internet Naming Service. A Windows NT Server method for associating a computer's host name with its address. WINS provides a distributed database for registering and querying dynamic NetBIOS computer names to IP address mapping in a routed network environment. It is designed to solve the problems that occur with name resolution in complex internetworks.

Windows Internet Naming Service. WINS is a system that provides name resoolution on network client and server computers that run the Windows operating system. WINS uses a distributed database that is automatically updated with the names of computers currently available and the IP address assigned to each one.
Windows Internet Name Service. A software service that dynamically maps IP addresses to computer names (NetBIOS names). This allows users to access resources by name instead of requiring them to use IP addresses that are difficult to recognize and remember. WINS servers support clients running Windows NT 4.0 and earlier versions of Microsoft operating systems. See also: Domain Name System (DNS); network basic input/output system (NetBIOS); WINS proxy; resource; service; WINS resource; IP address
service for determining names associated with computers in a network and allowing access to them. A computer contains a database with IP addresses (e.g. 184.108.40.206) and the common names assigned to each computer in the network (e.g. SERVER1).
(Windows Internet Name Service) WINS provides name resolution for computers running Windows NT, Windows 98, and earlier versions of Microsoft operating systems. With name resolution, users access servers by name rather than needing to use IP addresses.
Windows Internet Name Service. A Windows name resolution service for network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) names. WINS is used by hosts running NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) to register NetBIOS names and resolve NetBIOS names to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
The Windows Internet Naming Service protocol, developed by Microsoft, uses a database of client names and associates those names with IP addresses. WINS supports the use of CIFS (SMB) and NetBIOS ove ... more
