PNRP Machine Name Publication Service

The PNRP Machine Name Publication Service (PNRPAutoReg) publishes a computer name by using the Peer Name Resolution Protocol (PNRP). You can publish the computer name as a secured or unsecured peer name. The peer name configuration is managed by the following netsh command:

p2p pnrp peer.

This service is installed by default and its startup type is Manual.

When the PNRP Machine Name Publication Service is started in its default configuration, it logs on by using the Local Service account.

The PNRP Machine Name Publication Service is dependent upon the following system components:

  • Peer Name Resolution Protocol
  • Peer Networking Identity Manager
