Setting up Netbios Name resolution Node Types

Running IPCONFIG/all, shows the "node type" which shows which mode the browser is using.  I started "(B)Broadcast" Node without WINS enabled and then " (H)Hybrid" Node with WINS enabled.  How do u get the other Node types ie...P node, Enhanced Microsoft B-node, and (m)Mixed mode to show up? I realize that H-node is the most optimal way to browse.  This is simply an MCSE trivia question that is bothering me.

Easy. (but I don't think on your TCP/IP test)

Wins. Options for this are in the 40's ? range)

Of course, you can only select one type at a time.....
You do know that for win 9.x Winipcfg has a switch /ALL that displays even more data than winipcfg, right?

If not, it worth a beer when drinking with your mcse buddies.... Good for one round of drinks, anyway.

Thanks...forgot about DHCP Client options for browsing node type.  Can we do this for non-DHCP implementation? Thanks for WINIPCFG command.  Seems to be the windows equiv. of IPCONFIG/all.

Winipcgig is a graphicl equal to the nt ipconfig, hoping to see it in nt5 (haven't looked yet).... There is so many exras and tips in the resours kits, its amazing! Could spend lifetimes just studying them. Don't know of a implementation for non-dhcp, but again, so many things are hidden both in NT itself and the resourse kits.... I think you can order Resourse Kit, supp. 1 and get the orgional kit and the extras in Supp 1.
