According to http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=204279
if I disable NetBios over TCP/IP on windows2000,
ideally it whould use port 445 and all SMBs should
come directly over TCP.
But in traces I can see TCP, NBT  and then SMB, for
all the SMBs ???What is wrong here ? can it be
possible to see TCP,SMB in traces without NBT in
between ? If yes,What is the procedure?

Help on this will be highly appreciated.
