netbios-node-type [b-node|h-node|m-node|p-node]

[b-node|h-node|m-node| p-node]

Defines the netbios node type

  • b-node – Sets the node type as broadcast. Uses broadcasts to query nodes on the network for the owner of a NetBIOS name.

  • h-node – Sets the node type as hybrid. Uses a combination of two or more nodes.

  • m-node – Sets the node type as mixed. A mixed node uses broadcasted queries to find a node, and failing that, queries a known p-node name server for the address.

  • p-node – Sets the node type as peer-to-peer. Uses directed calls to communicate with a known NetBIOS name server (such as a WINS server), for the IP address of a NetBIOS machine.
