NetBIOS Session Service (NBSS)

The NetBIOS Session Service is part of the NetBIOS-over-TCP protocol suite, see the ["NetBIOS"] page for further information.


XXX - add a brief description of NBSS history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

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


The NBSS dissector is fully functional.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how NBSS 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 Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of NBSS display filter fields can be found in the [ display filter reference]

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter NBSS while capturing. However, as it runs atop ["TCP"] port 139, you can filter on that one.
