NetBIOS over IPX

The NetBIOS over IPX protocol is a variant of the various NetBIOS API protocol implementations, see the NetBIOS page for further information.

It is obsolete and superseded by NetBIOS over TCP/IP (see NetBIOS).


XXX - add a brief description of NetBIOS over IPX history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The NetBIOS over IPX dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is).

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how NetBIOS over IPX is dissected).

Example capture file

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

Display Filter

A complete list of NetBIOS over IPX display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Beware: this will not show other NetBIOS variants like NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter NetBIOS over IPX while capturing. XXX - fix this as this seems to be untrue!

See the NetBIOS page for further reference.
