    Hello,

    As you have bind NetBIOS with NetBEUI protocol which is not portable, nothing is going on, and your port 137-139 are stealth from the outside.
    Depending on you firewall and the way you log events what you see are just scans detected by your FW to which it does not respond. Most of them should come from infected servers by virus/worm opasoft seeking to find
    sensible machines. Take it easy, no problem for you, furthermore you have no shares activated :)

    Rgds,

    Hi:thanks a lot
    after I unchecked the net-bios over TCP/IP
    every-time I tried To connect To the net (dial-up)
    I get a prompt about entering My ISP password
    and the box To save that password is grayed out
    any idea
    many thanks .

    I think your best bet it to try it this way with the link I posted and forget about that other stuff.

    Configuration Instructions for Windows 95/98[me=Primrose] [/me]

    There are four easy steps to configure your NetBIOS: Install the NetBEUI Protocol, Configure Hardware Adapter, Configure Network Transfer Protocols, and Re-Boot Your Computer. To begin configuring NetBIOS, read on:
