OS400 NetBIOS protocol to be disabled while allowing CIFS to work
Netbios protocol has been deprecated for security reason and from internal security policy we need to disable it. This problem is already know to IBM : https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1020677 Opening a RFE in order to restrict the NetBIOS ports and let the NetServer work only on CIFS port.
Our businees user currently use CIFS on our OS400 (version 7.1). We need to improve securty disabling Netbios keeping CIFS working, but currently NetServer needs both NetBIOS and CIFS to be active at the same time to permit fileshare services.
