Transport NetBIOS packets over IPX


XXX - add a brief description of NBIPX history

Protocol dependencies

  • IPX: NBIPX uses IPX type 20/0x14 packets

Example traffic

XXX - Add example decoded traffic for this protocol here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The NBIPX dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, … whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Wireshark features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how NBIPX is dissected).

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here (see below). Keep this file short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.
