NetBIOS can be used to encapsulate other protocols by providing a virtual circuit over which other protocols can be transmitted. This is the opposite situation to those described above where other protocols provide the transport for NetBIOS.
A standard method of encapsulating the Internet Protocol (IP) datagrams on NetBIOS networks is described in:
