How can I control how many IP addresses the OS sends in response to a WINS request on a multihomed machine?

A. If a machine has multiple network adapter cards, the OS can send one IP address for each adapter when it receives a WINS request. You can configure this behavior by performing the following steps:

  1. Start the registry editor (e.g., regedit.exe).
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters.
  3. From the Edit menu, select New - DWORD value.
  4. Enter a name of SingleResponse, and press Enter.
  5. Double-click the new value, enter 1 to enable or 0 to disable, and click OK.
  6. Close the registry editor.
  7. Reboot the machine.
