A WINS server propagates changes that are received through a Push notification from its Pull partners by sending push notifications to its Push partners. If the WINS server has many Pull partners it will send frequent push notifications.

NOTE: Setting a high UpdateCount for a Push partner does not prevent Push notifications from being sent.

To turn of 'Push with Propagation':

1. Use the Registry Editor to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WINS\Partners\Push.

2. Edit or add Value Name PropNetUpdNtf, a REG_DWORD data type, and set the data value to 0, which prevents push notices from being send to pull partners.

NOTE: The default value for PropNetUpdNtf is 1. Making this change will affect the server's replication with all its' partners.
