JSI Tip 6390. How do I disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on a dial-up or VPN connection?

On a LAN connection, you can Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on the WINS tab. No such setting is available for a dial-up or VPN connection.

To disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on a dial-up or VPN connection:

1. Right-click the dial-up or VPN connect in the Network and Dial-up Connections window and press Properties.

2. Select the Networking tab.

3. Clear the following check boxes:

        File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
        Client for Microsoft Networks

4. Press OK.

NOTE: See Changing the binding order for \[Remote Access connections\] may cause some network utilities to use the wrong DNS server?
