Could any one explain on how NetBEUI protocol transactions take place? I have looked over the 2097 RFC.  Does any one have any questions?

Thanks!!!

I might get flamed for asking, but isn't NetBUEI pretty much a "dead Protocol" these days? (being non-routable). I would have thought an indepth study of TCP/IP would be a better investment of your time.

Yeah, I haven't seen NETBEUI in some time now.
The mentioned RFC is quite old and seems to attempt to define a transport  NETBIOS names over PPP.  These days NETBIOS over TCP would have seemingly deprecated RFC2097?

I worked for the company that created NETBIOS - should have paid more attention in those early days :-(

NetBEUI uses broadcast (ugh) to distribute frames across the whole local segment, and leaves it up to every host to decode every single packet to figure out, at a higher level, if it's something it needs to care about or not.  It's not routable, it's not switchable, and it's CPU intensive, even on machines that aren't part of a given conversation.  Its ONLY redeeming qualities are that it's simple to get working, and that not being routable, it's not subject to remote compromise.
