  • Need help to understand some networking terms

    I run into the following networking terms:

    1. Named Pipes over NetBIOS
    2. Named Pipes over NetBEUI
    3. Named Pipes over TCP/IP
    4. NetBIOS over TCP/IP
    5. SMB over NetBios
    6. SMB over NetBEUI
    7. SMB over TCP/IP

    I believe the order of the communication path is:

    Named Pipes
    SMB
    NetBIOS
    TCP/IP or NetBEUI

    So, I guess these:

    1. #1 Named Pipes over NetBIOS already includes #5 SMB over NetBios.

    2. #2 Named Pipes over NetBEUI already includes #1 Named Pipes over NetBIOS, #5 SMB over NetBios, and #6 SMB over NetBEUI.

    3. #3 Named Pipes over TCP/IP already includes #4 NetBIOS over TCP/IP, #5 SMB over NetBios, and #7 SMB over TCP/IP.

    I have the following understanding:

    1. Named Pipes is a network library.
    2. TCP/IP and NetBEUI are network transport protocols.
