SCO Advanced File and Print Server 4.0 brings the networking technology
from Windows NT 4.0 Server to SCO UnixWare. It is fully compatible with NT,
and interoperates with all Microsoft Windows systems.
Highlights of the significant new features in Release 4.0.1
are described in the following sections:
Windows Internet Name Services (WINS) provides a Windows NT compatible database
for managing NetBIOS name-to-IP address mappings in a routed network
environment, extending Advanced Server support from the LAN to WAN and dial-up
A new Windows administration tool, WINS Manager, is provided in the default
ASTOOLS share. See the
SCO Advanced Server Administration Guide, Chapter 5, Implementing WINS,
for more information.
WINS requires a WINS-enabled NetBIOS such as SCO NetBIOS for TCP/IP and cannot
be used over other protocols such as NetBEUI.
Most Advanced Server configuration information has been moved
from the lanman.ini file and is now stored in a
database called the Registry. New Windows-based
tools for modifying the Registry are
now included in the ASTOOLS share.
