    netbios info

    When searching google I found a great article on NetBIOS. I think it does a good job in explaining the risks that go with it.

    Yup that’s why NetBIOS is often referred to as Microsoft’s built in Trojan. It’s good for small home networks but make sure you use you firewall’s NetBIOS options.
    Its not software piracy. I’m just making multiple off site backups.

    Arrow NetBios-Share your drive with the world

    I totally agree

    NetBios is a very bad protocal
    and will get you into trouble.....
    I personally am a firm belever of using
    Linksys Routers and non-routable IP addresses
    for internal networks.....

    Big mistake I see that the NetBoui Protocal is no longer
    pushed or spported by MS in XP and you cannot choose which
    way to bind file sharing..

    I will say XP has improved things over 98/ME
    only problem there I see is that the built-in firewall
    in XP is that it is not turn on by default.
