Microsft Netbios

In Location A, our users have a mapping drive over the WAN, the mapping will be disconnected in short period when the WAE set up in between LAN switch and WAN router. Another service - content filtering (using 8e6 R3000), it cannot be work in location A after WAE512 installed. It is using Netbios to map the R3000 on client PC, then to define the user profile.

The connectivity is

(Client PC) <-> (LAN Switch) <-> (WAE 512) <-> (WAN Router in Location A) <-> (WAN Router in Location B) <-> (WAE 612) <-> (LAN Switch) <-> (8e6 R3000) <-> (FW) <-> (Internet Router)

WAE OS version is 4.0.13

I would add a Application Policy to bypass traffic to the IP address R3000 and then slowly add optimizations back into that policy. See if that fixes it.

Re: Microsft Netbios

Hi Dan,

Thanks for your prompt message.

Just clarified that the application policy settings you suggested,

1) Create Application policy,

Select Acceleration -> Policies -> Definitions

2) New Application Policy

Type: Basic

Application : Other

Application Classifier : R3000 (defined Destination address)

Action : Passthrough

Accelerate: Do Not Set

Please confirm me the above settings that is your expectation.

Re: Microsft Netbios


I always put my policies under the All Device Group to maintain a global standard across all my WAEs (but it should definitely go under where you manage your global policies), so I start by the following.

Devices/Device Groups/All Device Group/Acceleration/Definitions/

There I would follow your step 2). If the R3000 starts working again, then you can incrementally add TFO, then DRE/LZ to see if it works. I might also add a Application to then track the optimizations in the CM GUI if you so desire.
