    I have a Windows 2000 domain controller I am pulling out of an environment
    for various reasons. The 20 desktops were pointing to that device for WINS,
    but now they are going to be in the same workgroup on the same subnet. Since
    they are in the
    same workgroup, how can they still communicate by computer name? I assume
    ensuring netbios over tcp/ip would do it. Anything else required?

  2. Hello Joe,

    You talk about workgroup, the workstations are not in the domain?

    Best regards
