Setting up a VPN from laptop to work desktop, both WinXP Pro.

I gather I need to enter DNS Server ip address and WINS server ip address as
well in the VPN connection properties of the laptop.

How can I determine the ip address of the WINS server on the work desktop?

TIA,

From a command prompt;
ipconfig /all

Thanks Dave,

I knew about the ipconfig command, but it doesn't return anything labelled
WINS server.

Should I use the same address as the DNS Server(s)?

Then your network probably doesn't use WINS
