i want to install both a domain-controller and a ms proxy-server on the same system. in order to get packet filtering with proxy, two nics are needed. i heard that if there are two nics, WINS-server doesnt work anymore - but i need wins for the name-resolution for internet ...

does is work? is there a work-around?
do service-pack 3 or 4 change anything?

wins does not resolve internet names, dns does.  wins will work on a 2 nic server.  we have that setup here at work.

ok, thanks very much ...

what does wins do then? only the "internal" name resoultion?

when settings up in an enviroment with two systems, where the pdc has wins running, the proxy servers 1st nic has the internal ip and the wins. the secone (external) nic has the internet-ip and the isp-dns-ip. if this thing is one system, still only the internal nic gets the wins adress???

wins is for resolving NetBIOS names.  This name is the actual name given to a computer during installation.  The point of wins vs. dns is that the wins database is dynamically administered by the server when the clients boot.  the dns database must be administered manually.  when resolving a name there is an order to the resources that are used:
1. cache (if the name was resolved recently)
2. dns  (internet names)
3. hosts file (internet names)
4. wins (Netbios names)
5. broadcast (sent to everybody on the segment)
6. lmhosts (Netbios names)

so in every case dns is queried before wins.  you can configure each card individually to query or not query dns or wins.  configuring wins servers on the card that goes to the internet is pointless unless there is a computer on the dmz segment that registers with wins (like a ms computer running iis).  the point of configuring the card separately is to increase the network performance of the services and the cards themselves.
