NetBIOS: NetBIOS sets up and maintains connections. It is a non-routable protocol. NetBIOS uses broadcasts to spread information about servers.

NetBEUI: NetBEUI is the protocol that is responsible for data transport. Does handle all the frame formatting that is not handled by NetBIOS!!

NetBIOS is an acronym for Network Basic Input/Output System. The NetBIOS API allows applications on separate computers to communicate over a local area network. In modern networks, it normally runs over TCP/IP (NBT), giving each computer in the network both a NetBIOS name and an IP address corresponding to a (possibly different) host name. Older operating systems ran NetBIOS over IPX/SPX or IEEE 802.2 (NBF). NetBIOS provides services related to the session layer of the OSI model.

NetBEUI

DEFINITION - NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface) is a new, extended version of NetBIOS, the program that lets computers communicate within a local area network. NetBEUI (pronounced net-BOO-ee) formalizes the frame format (or arrangement of information in a data transmission) that was not specified as part of NetBIOS. NetBEUI was developed by IBM for its LAN Manager product and has been adopted by Microsoft for its Windows NT, LAN Manager, and Windows for Workgroups products. Hewlett-Packard ...more

NETBIEU:::the transport protocol sometimes used for Microsoft networking, it is necessary to describe Microsoft networking in some detail and the various protocols used and what network layers they support.

NetBIOS...> NetBIOS (pronounced /ˈnɛtbaɪ.ɒs/) is an acronym for Network Basic Input/Output System. It provides services related to the session layer of the OSI model allowing applications on separate computers to communicate over a local area network. As strictly an API, NetBIOS is not a networking protocol. Older operating systems ran NetBIOS over IEEE 802.2 and IPX/SPX using the NetBIOS Frames (NBF) and NetBIOS over IPX/SPX (NBX) protocols, respectively. In modern networks, NetBIOS normally runs over TCP/IP via the NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NBT) protocol.!!!.------------------------------------and....>>>
