  • WINS - event id 4204

    Hi,

    I wonder if anyone might be able to help with this WINS issue i've been receiving from my server SBS 2003 for a while.

    The event ID: 4204 - WINS could not read from the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) socket.

    I tried to check if the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is installed and found that it's there with a tick in the checkbox under LAN connection properties. I assume, it's installed. However, when i clicked on the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP), the button "install" was enabled and "uninstall" button was greyed out (disable). Then, i pressed on "install" button. The next screen pop up is a list of type of network component for me to click to install. They are Client, Service, and Protocol. Unsure what to do at this point.

    Can anyone help me with this WINS issue please

    Thank you in advance

    Did you stop the WINS service before trying to install Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) ?
    You really need to make sure its installed because the WINS gives this error because it isn't receiving certain packages.

      Thank you Spoofer for your reply.

      Just out of curiosity, should TCP/IP protocol not be installed at the start? I mean windows should have it installed in the first place, shouldn't it?

      Another thing i'd like to ask is that i noticed that i've been getting this error since i started to use the router Netgear FVS318v3 that's connected to the server SBS 2003. I wonder if i need to allow a certain port number in order to solve the problem.

      Thank you in advance

        associates ~ Can you post an ipconfig/all of the server?

              Ipconfig looks good.

              However, when i clicked on the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP), the button "install" was enabled and "uninstall" button was greyed out (disable).
              This is normal. My system does thes also.

              There is nothing wrong with your node. It is supposed to be unknown.

              See if any these help ~

                Associates,

                Do you get this message on startup only or every 40 mins? If every 40 mins, it is pretty safe to ignore - or you can use one of the articles to change the interval to much longer than 40 mins to decrease frequency.
                TIA
