NetBEUI and dial-up networking question

Answered Question
Nov 27th, 2006
User Badges:

Hi there, can you clarify this:


I am not sure whether the answer below is correct:


"Which of the following routed protocols

can be used in dial-up networking?"

a)TCP/IP

b)NETBeui

c)OSPF

d)IPX/SPX

e)IGRP


For me, a) and d) are correct. As far as I know, NetBeui cannot be routed.


The book states that b)NetBeui is also

correct.

Is the book answer wrong on this ?

Correct Answer by scottmac about 10 years 8 months ago

You are (at least partially) correct; NETBEUI/NETBIOS cannot be routed (there is no "Network Address" field).


What they *might* be implying is that Microsoft uses NETBEUI over TCP/IP, so can DLSW+ .... so it's "sort of" a routed protocol.


If that's not their intent, then it's just wrong.


Where'd the question come from? If it's a book, check the publisher's web site for an errata sheet.


Good Luck


Scott
