Wow, this is a weird one....

I am seeing lots of failed WINS traffic from my workstations...

E.g. Open a mail message in Groupwise on my laptop and it makes a query to
our WINS server looking for "SPECIAL". After that times out, then it does
a Netbios broadcast to the subnet looking for SPECIAL.

I don't think it is just Groupwise - any file access (even local) seems to
trip it off...

The knowledgebase reveals this -

Check out item 2.

Of course I am not running that way old client. I have tried 4.90 SP2 and

OS is W2K SP4.

Any ideas folks ?
