Netbios Logging in Win2k Pro?


1. Is there a way to log all Netbios connections?  I've read about a netbios.log file in newsgroup posts about 2000 server edition, but I have professional.  

2.  Also, is there a way to reliably restrict the IP's that netbios listens to?

NBTstat can be used to show netbios connection.

You may be able to use win2k auditing to catch all of the netbios usage in the event log.

I would also check the Microst site - search for Netbios log

I hope this helps !!

-I agree with Sysexpert nbtstat -S for sessions...

-if you want to block sessions to your computer by specific IP's , Id suggest you install Black-Ice which allows you to place IP addresses on "block lists"... If a computer on the list tries to communicate to your computer...it is not allowed.

For firewall protection, I prefer the Free ZoneAlarm from zonelabs.com

It has similar functionality.

I hope this helps !
