I have a strange issue with file sharing on my windows vista home premium PC in that file sharing is no loner working. After
sniffing my network traffic I have found that netbios request are being sent to port 80 and have no idea why. If I attempt to
access a share using
\<IP address> a request is sent to that IP address but using port 80 instead of 139. I have looked at a couple of things after a
web search including ensuring IPV6 is disabled which it is and that the TCP/IP Netbios Service is running. ( Although Im not to
sure what this service does). Netbios is enabled on the interface in question with the default setting of enabling it unless DHCP
tells it otherwise ( which my dhcp does not do).
I havent yet tried desabling Nebios and using filesharing over 445 but that will not cure the problem.
Thanks in advance
