JSI Tip 2663. How do I prevent Windows 2000 RAS from assigning WINS and DNS addresses to RAS clients?

In Windows 2000, RAS always assigns WINS and DNS addresses to RAS clients using the information on the TCP/IP tab of the RAS server.

To disable these features, use Regedt32 to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteAccess\Parameters\IP

To disable the assigning of WINS addresses, Add Value name SuppressWINSNameServers, as a REG_DWORD data type. Set the data value to 1.

To disable the assigning of DNS addresses, Add Value name SuppressDNSNameServers, as a REG_DWORD data type. Set the data value to 1.

Stop and restart your RemoteAccess service.
