1. Windows Internet Name Service (WINS)

Microsoft's implementation of NetBIOS Name Service (NBNS), a name server and service for NetBIOS computer names. Just as DNS serves up domain names, WINS serves up NetBios names and is particularly useful within a Microsoft-based network when or without the NetBIOS protocol installed. Use of WINS will decrease broadcast traffic.
