The WINS server is 44 (decimal).  You can find the other options in the 
NT Resource Kit version 3.5, section 13.5.5.  Alternatively, look in the 
RFC (the number escapes me for the moment ;)... WINS servers are listed 
as 'NetBIOS name servers'.

Generally, the option will require the parameters in hex form, so 
'T44=01020304' specifies a WINS server at ''.
