Two techie questions:
1) I note that, under Windows/95, the Scope ID field is greyed out if no
WINS server is defined. Does anyone know why MS would have chosen to
prevent the use of scope within a broadcast IP LAN environment? I do
not know how much use it would be, but I cannot see any benefit to be
gained by preventing people from using scope within a LAN.
2) Does anyone know how to extract a binary from a mangled MS Outlook
Express file? In the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit there is a file
called WINS.DLL. This is supposed to be a NetMon parser file. Take a
close look, though, and you'll notice that it *appears* to be an
encoded Outlook Express mail message. I've tried pulling it into MS
Word and extracting the DLL that way, but what I get still has the
string "Outlook" in it. Can anyone help with this?
