I don't understand. What was incorrect about them? If you look at one of
the NBSS Comtinuation Messages the nbt header it claims the nbt session
payload is 4993. Subtract 63 and you get 4930 which is what the
smb.data_length says. Where am I going wrong? AFAICT they look flawless.


A program should be written to  model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the  potential for it  to be applied  to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more  important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
