Re: configuration question

lmhost file on the PC is used for WINS resolution. If you do not want to use them, then you must provide a WINS server IP address to this PC so whenever it needs to resolve names, it points to this WINS server instead of local lmhost file.

Now the question is, how do you assign your PC an IP address

- statically ??

- dynamically usign a DHCP server

- dynamically from the router pool

whichever method you use, you can assign the WINS/DNS server to all the clients.

If the clients are obtaining the IP from the router pool, then you can add following additional command(s) to assign WINS/DNS server;

async-bootp nbns-server x.x.x.x (for WINS)

async-bootp dns-server x.x.x.x (for DNS)
