WICH IS FASTER TC/IP OR NETBUI ?????
HE THERE I GOT TWO MACHINES AND MADE A
MINI-LAN OUT OF THEM WITH ETHERNET CABLE
(COAX) IT IS RUNNING FINE WITH TC/IP BUT OTHERS SAY THAT NEBUI IS EASIER AND FASTER
I DONT KNOW I DONT WANNA TRY BEFORE I KNOW
WICH IS THE BEST I HAD A LOT OF TROUBLE CONNECTING THE 2 MACHINES ! AND THE LANGUIDE
ON THE INTERNET HELPED ME WITH CONFIGS (TC/IP) SO I WANNA ASK YOU WICH IS THE BEST ?
COOL DOWN THE BABIES !
I am assuming you are connecting two Windows machines together here. Technically speaking, Windows does a little trick of 'tunneling' NetBEUI through TCP/IP. I'd guess that translation adds some overhead to your network, so NetBEUI may indeed end up being faster. As for less hassle, keep things setup with TCP/IP because you'll have it installed anyway in order to browse the web. Why add more complication to an already working setup?
thanks man thats the info i need !
It works great and i am happy with it.
Ok, I was probably on crack when I posted my first response here. Microsoft tunnels NetBIOS inside TCP/IP, not NetBEUI. NetBIOS is more of a connection protocol that allows for connections by name and broadcast requests for name resolution. NetBEUI, as I understand it, allows for all this without NetBIOS, which should in theory speed up the transfer. Still, you are going to have TCP/IP enabled to get to the internet, so you might as well use it and not muddy the waters with another protocol. The only good reason I can think of to do so is to keep things more secure. If you share files over TCP/IP, someone over the internet could in theory get at those files. NetBEUI will not go out over the internet. As a protocol, NetBEUI is pretty old, and fast evaporating as everything tries to move toward pure IP. I avoided using it clear back in the Win3.11 days, and still do. Even if you want the security, why not use IPX/SPX which is not a Microsoft proprietary standard?
Anyhow, I thought I'd clear up my mistake above, and add a little further info as well.
Thanks KTWEBB !!
These are the answers i want to know !!
The only Ugly thing i have to solve is to get my Diamond speedstar A50 to work in Linux
i got the right server but is doesent work !
Beye the way my play card is a diamond Monster 3DII nice card !
Cool down the babies !!
He 800 XL thanks also for your reply
For the internet security i have
the Conseal PC-firewall wich blocks out and ingoing Strange protocold and adresses
it works realy nice !!
I have used both, and the difference between TCP/IP and netbuei is likely on the level that only bats can hear. Any slowness to TCP/IP is usually due to problems with name resolution, which is arguably poor at best. I would still stick to TCP/IP as netbeui is not likely to continue much longer. Win2k may well not have support for it. Learning about TCP/IP will be worth more than anything else in the coming years.
Netbui is quite a bit faster. If you do not have an outside connection I would use Netbui, however, most games want IPX/SPX or TCP/IP so it really depends on what you want. Small LAN, no internet connnection, no games, only file and printer sharing, then go Netbui only and it will smoke. Otherwise stay TCP/IP all the way.
