It’s obvious. However, what does it use if I type PING station ??? Let’s assume that the network has DNS, WINS, and the workstation we’re using has a HOSTS and LMHOSTS files. Both NBT and DNS caches are empty and IP is configured with WINS and DNS Servers. What does PING do to resolve the name “station”, and in what order?
