Looking to gain understanding of NetBEUI

August 27, 2011 at 06:12:02
Specs: Windows 7
I am a IT networking student who is learning all this stuff for the first time and I would like to understand why are some protocols, like NetBEUI, are not routable. Also I have read elsewhere that many OT techs don't like NetBEUI and that Windows is phasing this out? Is that true? Unfortunately, I am concerned that our textbooks are of 2006 and a lot has changed since then, or has it?

There's a wealth of information on the Internet. All you need to do is to learn how to find it.

Nothing much has changed since 2006. The biggest change is the introduction of IPv6

to like or dislike a protocol is based on ignorace. don't follow that crowd.
a netbeui packet isn't large enough to contain routing information since it was not designed with routing in mind.

You are confusing netbios api with netbeui. They are not the same
