6. Further Information

If you want to know about more about WINS, particularly its relationship with NetBIOS names and network browsing, look at the WINS — Windows Internet Naming Service page first. If you have further queries, contact winsmaster. The winsmaster has considerable expertise in WINS, name resolution, server location, network browsing, name clashes etc. Unfortunately there is no way for you to query the WINS database yourselves, but the winsmaster will happily check that machines are registering themselves correctly if you include details of machine name and/or IP addresses that you would like checked.
