How activate WINS server

Hi all,

I need to activate WINS on my Windows 7 Proessional. How could I do this?

I have two networks (200.x.x.x and 100.x.x.x) and need to scan, share and access the stations on both networks.

My Win are into 200 network.

Thanks for any help,

Ronaldo

Hi seavixen32,

I found this article when I'm lokking for an answer but I didn't find these steps on my Windows 7. What I did wrong?

Unless I'm mistaken, you need to be configuring the computer that Windows Server is installed on, not your Windows 7 computer.

seavixen,

I need to use my Windows 7 as the WINS server for the networks, 200.x.x.x where are Windows 7 and a remote subnet (100.x.x.x) where I have some WinXP.

All my stations are into the same workgroup.

Thanks and regards,

Ronaldo

In that case, I'm out of ideas as the configuration screen you mention does not appear in Windows 7's Turn Windows features on or off.
