JSI Tip 6568. How do I reduce the incidences of 'Push with Propagation' that may occur on a WINS server in a PUSH/PULL relationship?

A WINS server propagates changes that are received through a Push notification from its Pull partners by sending push notifications to its Push partners. If the WINS server has many Pull partners it will send frequent push notifications.

NOTE: Setting a high UpdateCount for a Push partner does not prevent Push notifications from being sent.

To turn of 'Push with Propagation':

1. Use the Registry Editor to navigate to:


2. Edit or add Value Name PropNetUpdNtf, a REG_DWORD data type, and set the data value to 0, which prevents push notices from being send to pull partners.

NOTE: The default value for PropNetUpdNtf is 1. Making this change will affect the server's replication with all its' partners.
