Can I disable NetBIOS in windows when using EngageOne Designer

Product Effected: EngageOne Designer 6 / Doc1 Designer 5

Product Feature: Installation / Upgrade

NetBIOS over TCP/IP allows host name resolution for NetBIOS names over the TCP/IP protocol. This is a legacy element of the TCP/IP protocol and is no longer required by the Designer product.

To disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP support


  1. From the Network and Internet icon in Control Panel , select Local Area Connection and right-click Properties .
  2. On the General tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the list of components by clicking on it, and then click the Properties button.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
  4. Click the WINS tab. Then under the NetBIOS settings section, click Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP .
  5. Click OK three times to exit the network settings.
