I read Daniel Petri's warnings about disabling netbios and not using it for file sharing. I was about to install Netbeui on my windows xp pro machines and my windows 2003 server (used as programming workstation) for file sharing, when I read somewhere that the Ipx/Spx protocol is now preferred. However, I think I have to turn on netbios to use it. Which method is more secure for sharing files between a few computers on a local home router network???
No announcement yet.
