Your question regarding Samba on VxWorks really belongs on the 
Samba at mailing list.  The Samba Technical mailing list is 
supposed to be used for SMB/CIFS developer discussions.

That said...

NetBIOS runs over IP using an emulated LAN protocol known as NBT.  Samba 
implements this so, if you find Samba for VxWorks you will have NetBIOS 
over TCP/IP.
