JSI Tip 2311. How can I override the automatic WINS and DNS Server Assignment for RAS/DUN clients in Windows NT 4.0?


When a client dials a RAS server, they use the WINS and DNS defined in the RAS server's setup.

In knowledge base article Q205247, Microsoft defines the following Value Names to override the default:

   "The following parameters appear in the registry only during an active connection to a RAS server.

   Change this parameter to override the primary WINS server assigned by RAS to clients: 

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\adaptername\ParametersRemoteAccess\Parameters\IP

        Value Name: WINSNameServer Value Type: REG_SZ (number string)
        Valid Range: valid IP address (for example, 192.168.20.30)
        Default: Blank
        Description: This parameter controls whether Windows NT assigns an alternate primary WINS server to DUN/RAS clients. 
        This parameter defaults to 0.0.0.0 or false. 

   Change this parameter to override the secondary WINS server assigned by RAS to clients: 

        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\adaptername\ParametersRemoteAccess\Parameters\IP

        Value Name: WINSNameServerBackup
        Value Type: REG_SZ (number string)
