Name Resolution Webinar Trilogy Part 2 – Local name resolution in Windows networks

Men&Mice Webinar Trilogy – Rethinking Name Resolution in Local Networks

Change always happens faster than we think. Quite a number of web developers may be caught off-guard when Google releases their new Chrome browser, which is intended to start enforcing TLS-encryption (HTTPS) for all domains ending in the top-level domain “dev”.

As the saying goes “all good things come in threes” so instead of just scratching the surface of this important development in one webinar, we’ve decided to go the whole hog and turn the discussion into a more detailed webinar trilogy on the subject of “name resolution in local networks.”

Part 1 looks at namespaces for local networks, Part 2 explores local name resolution in Windows networks and Part 3 concludes our local name resolution webinar trilogy by taking a deep look into local name resolution in Linux, FreeBSD and macOS/iOS.

Part 2 – Local Name Resolution in Windows Networks

Microsoft operating systems have a long history of local name resolution solutions, from NetBIOS over WINS to the LLMNR and PNRP protocols today.

In this webinar we take a look at PNRP and LLMNR in Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 and how these protocols can be used to have server-less name resolution without a centralized DNS infrastructure. We also look deeper into the interoperability of these new protocols with older Windows versions, such as Windows 7 or Windows 8.
