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 thatís why NetBIOS is often referred to as Microsoftís built in Trojan. Itís good for small home networks but make sure you use you firewallís NetBIOS options.
Its not software piracy. Iím just making multiple off site backups.
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.
