To set the WINS server for all DHCP clients located across subnets, assign DHCP option code 44 (a list of IP addresses for WINS servers) and use the server computer's IP address as the value.

To ensure that WINS is used first by all DHCP clients for NetBIOS name resolution (before broadcast name resolution is tried), assign option code 46 (WINS/NBT node type) to identify the WINS node type as h-node (hybrid node).

I don't think you will see it in the GUI.

If you do an :

IPCONFIG /ALL

...command at the command prompt you should see it however.

Hi use option

044: set up IP address of WINS server(s)
046: set up 0x8

on a client in command-line type

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /all

and check if you can see WINS server(s)

Regards,
Krzysztof
