I'm studying for a mcse exam. I'm going thru WINS resolution quering order. I see that whenever quering local cache is refered to in regards to the clients attempt to resolve for before asking the server. Its always referred to as "NetBIOS remote name cache".

Why is it called "remote" isn't this (or that) the point. Isn't it quering its OWN LOCAL cache? Not another nodes (client, server, whatever).

That's just what they named it.

Per Microsoft;

How WINS Works
By default, when a system is configured to use WINS for its name resolution, it adheres to h-node for name registration. For name resolution, it will also adhere to h-node but with a few differences. It will:

Check to see if it is the local machine name.
Check its cache of remote names. Any name that is resolved is placed in a cache where it will remain for 10 minutes.
Try the WINS Server.
Try broadcasting.
Check the LMHOSTS file, if the system is configured to use the LMHOSTS file.
Try the HOSTS file and then a DNS, if so configured.
