I have Windows 2003 ES. There are 3 network cards. One is connected to DSL modem (Internet) and has DynIP, two others are for private networks (static IPs).
I installed WINS server. The problem WINS server always try to use public IP for itself and in the same time it write me that "WINS server was not found". It is not really good. When I try to add server with one of the private IP, it changes it back to the public IP and "WINS server was not found" again...
If I unplag the cable from DSL modem, the WINS server is changes to the one of the private IP and works fine. But I kind of need Internet...
Thank you!

Here's an option. Make sure that the Internet NIC is last in row the server looks at, here's how..

1. Go to the server and open the Network properties.
2. In network properties, go to advanced
3. In the advanced menu choose Advanced Options
4. Make sure that the Internet connection is last in line at the connections box (you can change properties by using the green arrows next to the box).

This should dothe trick..
