Wins Problem

Wins Problem

Wins Problem

I have 2 servers over a WAN which communicate ok, ie domain Replication is fine, can be pinged by name and IP Address.
Problem is that event viewer reports :- "WINS replication was aborted by remote host"

Why ?


RE: Wins Problem

I Don't know if this will help...

Ensure that WINS and/or LMHOSTS file contains proper entries for both the import and export servers.

OR read this WINS Replication NT Knowledge base article....
"WINS Server Sends IGMP Packets on Startup"

Also this article may shed some light...
"Domain Browsing with TCP/IP and LMHOSTS Files"

Good Luck
