    There are actually quite a few threads on Antionline that discuss the Netbios: have a look at this page:

    Soggybottom made a nice little explanation in this post - I'll quote him here for your convinience

    Netbios enables file sharing across networks. If your drives are incorrectly configured, allowing file sharing, you can potentially allow a hacker to map a drive to you, and giving them full file system access to yuor computer.

    I think that companies enable netbios to enable them to conveniently access various data files. Eg. If a variety of people need access to the same files, put the files in one place, and get everyone to map a drive to it.

    Also, with NT, if you are familiar with the nbtstat command, this can pick up hostnames, login details, Mac addresses, IP Addresses etc from the Netbios UDP crap that your computer is broadcasting on a regular basis.

    If you want to see how much netbios traffic your computer slurts out, simply install a personal firewall on your PC and log all outbound and inbound netbios traffic (Ports 135-139 WNT, Port 445 for W2K (I think). It is heaps!!
    I wish to express my gratitude to the people of Italy. Thank you for inventing pizza.
