Hi Jeffrey,

That's interesting. Do I really need NetBIOS enabled? Can't I just get
by simply by using SMB over plain TCP/IP (port 445 only)? I have
NetBIOS over TCP/IP disabled on my normal (physical) network
interface. Also, the corresponding NetBIOS services are disabled.
LMHOSTS lookup is disabled for my physical interface as well.

Why are NetBIOS and LMHOSTS needed for OpenAFS?

Thanks in advance & kind regards,
