Enable NetBIOS

NetBIOS name resolution is the process of successfully mapping a NetBIOS name to an Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) address.

To enable NetBIOS name resolution:

You must be logged on as an administrator or belong to the Administrators group to complete these steps.

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Network and Sharing Center, click Manage Network Connections, right-click the network interface on which you want to enable NetBIOS, and then click Properties.
  2. Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then click Properties.
  3. Click Advanced, click WINS, and then select Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.


Attempt to access a remote shared network folder. If you can access the shared network folder, then the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) server and the NBT protocol are functioning properly.
