Can NetBIOS resolution uses DNS be a substitute of WINS server? I have seen some 95 clients which do not use WINS server but the box NetBIOS Resolution Uses DNS is ticked, through the WINIPCFG. The 95 clients can see computer names of other domains.

If it is possible to do, how is it done?

-Thanks

To see computer names of other domains, you don't need to have your 95 box set up as a WINS client.  One WINS Server on the local subnet is capable of creating a Browse List and this list is supplied to all the machines.  When a request for a Browse list is made from a 95 box any Browse Master can respond to the request and supply it.  As I see it, NetBIOS resolution and WINS are two different entities.

Good Luck..
