Respond to WINS Queries with Only One IP when Using Multiple Adapters

If you have multiple network adapters in your machine that are connected to a network, Windows by default responses to WINS queries with each adapter’s IP address. However, you can force Windows to response only with one of the IPs.


Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters

Value Name: SingleResponse

DWORD Value: 0 = disabled, 1 = enabled


NOTE: To use load balancing, you cannot enable this setting.
