Hi, technically for 4.0 it would be netbeui which is a small, fast, non-routable protocol suitable for small networks. Microsoft has adopted the TCP/IP standard for routable networks, and of course, tcp/ip is the protocol of the internet. NWLINK is microsoft's implementation of novell's IPX/SPX protocol (and interoperability services for novell include client services for netware and gateway services for netware). Point-to-point protocol is used for RAS and virtual private networks. So, technically, the only microsoft-specific protocol is netbeui; however, tcp/ip (with its roots in unix)is considered the protocol of choice with microsoft. Hope this helps.

It is true that netbeui is used with other operating systems, but it is a protocol that is considered microsofts (os/2 was both MS and IBM). I agree, however, that there is no protocol specific to and limited to windows NT.

The Short answer, none. All protocols used by Windows NT are used by other operating systems as well. The NetBeui protocol is used by OS/2 Lan Server and Microsofts Lan Manager as well. Im only answering this specificaly because you might have had some reason and needed very specific information. For example you were trying to isolate some systems. If you were looking to isolate a system group and you wanted a virtual lan and not use TCP/IP, you might use Netbeui and set a scope id for all systems using it. This would effectivly isolate these systems. Again not knowing why your asking this question, I cant guess any further. No disrespect for the first post as he had a very informative post and was pretty much accurate! Respectfuly
