Use of DNS is optional. DNS allows you to specify remote systems by their host names rather
than IP addresses. If a specific IP address (instead of a name) is entered for a connection, it is used
to make the connection. Enter the DNS Domain and the network address of an available DNS
Server. The function of the DNS Domain entry is to provide a default suffix to be used in name
resolution. The values for these two boxes may be supplied by a DHCP server. If the DHCP server
supplies these values, they replace any locally configured values. If the DHCP server does not
supply these values, the locally configured values will be used.
NOTE: You can enter up to 16 DNS Server addresses, separated by a semicolon, comma, or
space. The first address is for the primary DNS server and the rest are secondary DNS servers
or backup DNS servers .
d. Enter the IP address of the WINS Server in the WINS Server box.
Use of WINS is optional. Enter the network address of an available WINS name server. WINS
allows you to specify remote systems by their host names rather than IP addresses. If a specific IP
address (instead of a name) is entered for a connection, it is used to make the connection. These
entries can be supplied through DHCP, if DHCP is used. DNS and WINS provide essentially the
same function, name resolution. If both DNS and WINS are available, the thin client attempts to
resolve the name using DNS first and then WINS.
You can enter two WINS Server addresses (primary and secondary), separated by a semicolon,
comma, or space.
e. Enter the digit multiplier of 30 seconds in the TCP Timeout box to set the time-out value of a
TCP connection. The value must be 1 or 2 which means the connection time-out value is from
1x30= 30 seconds to 2x30= 60 seconds. If the data for connecting to the server is not
acknowledged and the connection is time out, setting the time-out period retransmits the sent
data and again tries to connect to the server till the connection is established.
