I need DHCP in Suse to deliver a WINS IP setting

Does Suse dhcp server support a WINS setting?. I have a need that requires me to use SUSE as my DHCP but it needs to send the WINS server IP to
Win 98 machines. Also does SUSE have a WINS server?

I guess you are confused :)

first of all

dhcp its dhcp its all linux flavors :), or at least its what I know :-D

but, if you need to inform your Win98 machines of what wins resolver must use, try the next line in your dhcpd.conf

option netbios-name-servers 192.168.2.8;
option netbios-dd-server 192.168.2.8;
option netbios-node-type 8;

where 192.168.2.8 is your wins server :)


I hope this helps :)


Aurus tunes out.

That is exactly what I needed. It would save me a machine if there was a WINS servcie that could run on linux. I'm sure there is not much of a demand for this but I hope that I would not have to waste a machine just to be a WINS server.
