  • Hi Prabhath,


    To enable NetBIOS, try the following:


    1. Click Start, and then click Network. (click Start, type ncpa.cpl into the search box for Windows 7 or Vista, hit ENTER).

    2. Click on the Network and Sharing Center

    3. Click Manage Network Connections.

    4. Right click on the Local Area Connection select Properties.

    5. Select Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)

    6. Click the Advanced button under the General tab.

    7. Click the WINS tab.

    8. Click Enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP.

    9. Click OK and Exit the settings.

     

    Hope this helps.

  •   net view is an NT legacy app and depends on Netbios over TCP/IP. Is this enabled on the NICs in these PCs?
