Windows internet Name Service (WINS) provides a dynamic replicated database service that can register and resolve NetBIOS names to IP addresses used on your network. The Microsoft® Windows Server 2003 family provides WINS, which enables the server computer to act as a NetBIOS name server and register and resolve names for WINS-enabled client computers on your network as described in the NetBIOS over TCP/IP standards.

On territory war online how do you get 270000 wins and NaN losses?

You don't, its a hack that people use. When your putting in your user name before logging in, you put the & symbol and a code. Then, when you log on, you will have your normal wins added with a bunch of 0's. Like if you have 5 wins and use the hack, you will have 50000 wins. For the loses, NaN means Not a Number. That's for hiding your real loses.
