There's been discussion of how useful netbeui is.

I recently read a column in one of the free rags (PC Week?)
where the writer discussed having win95 machines
directly hooked up to the internet.

If that's the case, you don't want to export shares via tcp/ip,
because others could wreck havoc on your machines (since
Netbeui is non-routable, its fairly safe).

This sounds like the best use I've heard for netbeui (you
purposely want a non-routable protcol).

Don't confuse education with schooling.
