NetBIOS

Network Basic Input/Output System allows applications on separate computers to communicate over a local area network. NetBIOS provides the services that are related to the session layer. NetBIOS does not support a routing mechanism. Applications that communicate on a wide area network must use a different transport mechanism (such as TCP/IP) rather than NetBIOS.
