Summary

NetBT has a common message format for NetBIOS name service messages, which have a fixed-size portion and a variable-sized portion. The variable-sized portion contains entries and records to perform name resolution, registration, refresh, and release. WINS-based NetBIOS name resolution consists of an exchange of Name Query Request and Name Query Response messages. For successful resolution, the Name Query Response message contains an answer RR for the NetBIOS name that was requested. NetBIOS name registration consists of an exchange of Name Registration Request and Name Registration Response messages. If a unique NetBIOS name is already registered, the WINS server responds with a WACK message, confirms ownership of the name, and then responds with a Name Registration Response message. NetBIOS name refresh consists of an exchange of Name Refresh Request and Name Registration Response messages. NetBIOS name release consists of an exchange of Name Release Request and Name Release Response messages.
