NetBIOS Datagram Service (NBDS)

The NetBIOS Datagram Service is part of the NetBIOS-over-TCP protocol suite, see the NetBIOS page for further information.


XXX - add a brief description of NBDS history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

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


The NBDS dissector is partially functional; it should dissect all of the protocol, but does not reassemble datagrams fragmented at the NBDS layer.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how NBDS 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 NBDS display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter NBDS while capturing. However, as it runs atop UDP port 138, you can filter on that port.

Capture NBDS traffic:

 udp port 138
