Network Basic Input/Output System, a client/server interprocess communication service developed by International Business Machine (IBM) in the early 1980s. NetBIOS presents a relatively primitive mechanism for communication in client/server applications, but its widespread acceptance and availability across most operating systems makes it a logical choice for simple network applications. Many Windows NT network IPC mechanisms are implemented over NetBIOS.

See Network Basic Input/Output System
Extension of the PC BIOS which traps calls to the BIOS, and, where necessary, re-routes them to a LAN. Acts as an API between a program and a LAN adapter. Developed as the API for the PC Network program, but supported on the TRN (using a special program), and on a number of non-IBM systems.
A peer-to-peer LAN network protocol that can use Ethernet, token ring, and other LANs. NetBIOS provides services through the use of a set of commands. These commands are placed into a format called the network control block (NCB). NetBIOS provides two types of services to transport information: session and datagram services.
Network basic input/output system. A communications software protocol which can be used among interconnected personal computers or workstations.
A program that allows applications on different computers to communicate within a local network. By default, Zone Labs security software allows NetBIOS traffic in the Trusted Zone, but blocks it in the Internet Zone. This enables file sharing on local networks, while protecting you from NetBIOS vulnerabilities on the Internet.

A protocol developed by IBM and Sytek that provides users several networking functions.
Network Basic Input Output System. An API (Application Programming Interface) that extends the DOS BIOS by making it work with LANs (Local Area Networks). Most LANs are based on NetBIOS. There are extensions on NetBIOS itself, such as NetBEUI. NetBIOS is based on a message format called SMB (Server Message Block). NetBIOS names are up to 15 characters long. See also DNS and my article on Identifying Network Computers.

This is a communication protocol used on small LANs by applications.
Software developed by IBM that extends the interface between the PC operating system and the PC I/O bus to include attachment to a network. Since its design, NetBIOS has become a de facto standard, providing the basic framework for PCs to operate on a LAN.
An acronym for Network Basic Input Output System. It's an application program interface (API) used in local-area networks (LANs). Mentioned here because custom-software relying on NetBIOS, which was never designed for WANs, cannot be accelerated for better performance over satellite.

Short for Network Basic Input/Output System, NetBIOS was developed by IBM, Microsoft and Sytek and is what allows software applications commonly used on IBM compatible computers communicate with network hardware, allowing data to be transmitted properly over a network. NetBIOS commonly communicates on ports 137, 138 and 139. If your network or computer has a firewall setup that blocks any of these ports it is likely warning messages will be received when your computer communicates with another computer that utilizes NetBIOS (for example Microsoft Windows). To prevent these errors or warnings you must provide access on these ports.
