Weird WINS error

Post by Jimi » Sun, 17 Sep 2000 04:00:00

This error appears in my system event log:

EventID 4202
An attempt to connect to the remote WINS server with address returned with
an error. Check  to see that the remote WINS server is running and
and that WINS is  running on that server.

This server is the Secondary WINS server. IP
The primary WINS server is

They are both push pull partners of each other. Both have their own IP
address as primary and no secondary WINS server specified.

There is only one NIC in this server, with only one IP address
assigned to it.

I've checked in WINS manager the only IPs or Servers mentioned are the
apparently the correct ones. We only have the 2 WINS servers, neither
are the PDC or BDC.

They don't seem to repeat with any regularity. The closest repeat was
18hrs the last occupance happened 6 days apart.

Any Ideas?


1. weird weird blackouts

A month ago I clicked on Systemworks STOP SCAN and the computer lost power for like a second, then it rebooted. It took me a month to clean up the system. It did it once again when I clicked on something during Windows Repair install. Now I can replicate it. If I start Paperport and click on an icon, like Adobe it will black out again. I just do not understand how software could shut down the computer, that is why I am putting this in the hardware section, but please feel free to cross party lines and give any of your theories, factual or just good ones, - all much appreciated.
