Question about Microsoft Windows Server Standard 2003 for PC
Could you please explain me the difference between WINS and DNS
Posted on Jul 21, 2008
WINS is Windows Internet Naming Service, a system that determines the IP address associated with a particular network computer. This is called name resolution. WINS supports network client and server computers running Windowsand can provide name resolution for other computers with specialarrangements. Determining the IP address for a computer is a complexprocess when DHCPservers assign IP addresses dynamically. For example, it is possiblefor DHCP to assign a different IP address to a client each time themachine logs on to the network.
DNS, a.k.a Domain Name System is a database system thattranslates a computer's fully qualified domain name into anIP address.Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to eachother, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. Forexample, on the web, it's much easier to remember the domain namewww.amazon.com than it is to remember its correspondingIP address (126.96.36.199). DNS allows you to connect to anothernetworked computer or remote service by using its user-friendly domainname rather than its numerical IP address. Conversely, Reverse DNS(rDNS) translates an IP address into a domain name.
