             PROTOCOL STANDARD FOR A NetBIOS SERVICE
                     ON A TCP/UDP TRANSPORT:
                     DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS




                            ABSTRACT

This RFC defines a proposed standard protocol to support NetBIOS
services in a TCP/IP environment.  Both local network and internet
operation are supported.  Various node types are defined to accommodate
local and internet topologies and to allow operation with or without the
use of IP broadcast.

This RFC gives the detailed specifications of the NetBIOS-over-TCP
packets, protocols, and defined constants and variables.  A more general
overview is found in a companion RFC, "Protocol Standard For a NetBIOS
Service on a TCP/UDP Transport: Concepts and Methods".

3.  INTRODUCTION

   This RFC contains the detailed packet formats and protocol
   specifications for NetBIOS-over-TCP.  This RFC is a companion to
   RFC 1001, "Protocol Standard For a NetBIOS Service on a TCP/UDP
   Transport: Concepts and Methods" [1].

4.  PACKET DESCRIPTIONS

   Bit and byte ordering are defined by the most recent version of
   "Assigned Numbers" [2].

4.1.  NAME FORMAT

   The NetBIOS name representation in all NetBIOS packets (for NAME,
   SESSION, and DATAGRAM services) is defined in the Domain Name
   Service RFC 883[3] as "compressed" name messages.  This format is
   called "second-level encoding" in the section entitled
   "Representation of NetBIOS Names" in the Concepts and Methods
   document.

   For ease of description, the first two paragraphs from page 31,
   the section titled "Domain name representation and compression",
   of RFC 883 are replicated here:

        Domain names messages are expressed in terms of a sequence
        of labels.  Each label is represented as a one octet length
        field followed by that number of octets.  Since every domain
        name ends with the null label of the root, a compressed
        domain name is terminated by a length byte of zero.  The
        high order two bits of the length field must be zero, and
        the remaining six bits of the length field limit the label
        to 63 octets or less.

        To simplify implementations, the total length of label
        octets and label length octets that make up a domain name is
        restricted to 255 octets or less.

   The following is the uncompressed representation of the NetBIOS name
   "FRED ", which is the 4 ASCII characters, F, R, E, D, followed by 12
   space characters (0x20).  This name has the SCOPE_ID: "NETBIOS.COM"

           EGFCEFEECACACACACACACACACACACACA.NETBIOS.COM

   This uncompressed representation of names is called "first-level
   encoding" in the section entitled "Representation of NetBIOS Names"
   in the Concepts and Methods document.

   The following is a pictographic representation of the compressed
   representation of the previous uncompressed Domain Name
   representation.

   Each section of a domain name is called a label [7 (page 31)].  A
   label can be a maximum of 63 bytes.  The first byte of a label in
   compressed representation is the number of bytes in the label.  For
   the above example, the first 0x20 is the number of bytes in the
   left-most label, EGFCEFEECACACACACACACACACACACACA, of the domain
   name.  The bytes following the label length count are the characters
   of the label.  The following labels are in sequence after the first
   label, which is the encoded NetBIOS name, until a zero (0x00) length
   count.  The zero length count represents the root label, which is
   always null.

   A label length count is actually a 6-bit field in the label length
   field.  The most significant 2 bits of the field, bits 7 and 6, are
   flags allowing an escape from the above compressed representation.
   If bits 7 and 6 are both set (11), the following 14 bits are an
   offset pointer into the full message to the actual label string from
   another domain name that belongs in this name.  This label pointer
   allows for a further compression of a domain name in a packet.

   NetBIOS implementations can only use label string pointers in Name
   Service packets.  They cannot be used in Session or Datagram Service
   packets.

   length field are reserved for future use by RFC 883[2 (page 32)].

   Note that the first octet of a compressed name must contain one of
   the following bit patterns.  (An "x" indicates a bit whose value may
   be either 0 or 1.):

           00100000 -  Netbios name, length must be 32 (decimal)
           11xxxxxx -  Label string pointer
           10xxxxxx -  Reserved
           01xxxxxx -  Reserved

4.2.  NAME SERVICE PACKETS

4.2.1.  GENERAL FORMAT OF NAME SERVICE PACKETS

   The NetBIOS Name Service packets follow the packet structure defined
   in the Domain Name Service (DNS) RFC 883 [7 (pg 26-31)].  The
   structures are compatible with the existing DNS packet formats,
   however, additional types and codes have been added to work with
   NetBIOS.

   If Name Service packets are sent over a TCP connection they are
   preceded by a 16 bit unsigned integer representing the length of the
   Name Service packet.

   Since the RR_NAME is the same name as the QUESTION_NAME, the
   RR_NAME representation must use pointers to the QUESTION_NAME
   name's labels to guarantee the length of the datagram is less
   than the maximum 576 bytes.  See section above on name formats
   and also page 31 and 32 of RFC 883, Domain Names - Implementation
   and Specification, for a complete description of compressed name
   label pointers.

   Since the RR_NAME is the same name as the QUESTION_NAME, the
   RR_NAME representation must use label string pointers to the
   QUESTION_NAME labels to guarantee the length of the datagram is
   less than the maximum 576 bytes.  This is the same condition as
   with the NAME REGISTRATION REQUEST.

   FMT_ERR       0x1   Format Error.  Request was invalidly
                       formatted.

   SRV_ERR       0x2   Server failure.  Problem with NBNS, cannot
                       process name.

   RFS_ERR       0x5   Refused error.  For policy reasons server
                       will not release this name from this host.

   ACT_ERR       0x6   Active error.  Name is owned by another node.
                       Only that node may release it.  A NetBIOS
                       Name Server can optionally allow a node to
                       release a name it does not own.  This would
                       facilitate detection of inactive names for
                       nodes that went down silently.

   An end node responding to a NAME QUERY REQUEST always responds
   with the AA and RA bits set for both the NEGATIVE and POSITIVE
   NAME QUERY RESPONSE packets.  An end node never sends a REDIRECT
   NAME QUERY RESPONSE packet.

   When the requestor receives the REDIRECT NAME QUERY RESPONSE it
   must reiterate the NAME QUERY REQUEST to the NBNS specified by
   the NSD_IP_ADDR field of the A type RESOURCE RECORD in the
   ADDITIONAL section of the response packet.  This is an optional
   packet for the NBNS.

   The NSD_NAME and the RR_NAME in the ADDITIONAL section of the
   response packet are the same name.  Space can be optimized if
   label string pointers are used in the RR_NAME which point to the
   labels in the NSD_NAME.

   The RR_NAME in the AUTHORITY section is the name of the domain
   the NBNS called by NSD_NAME has authority over.

   The NAME_TRN_ID of the WACK RESPONSE packet is the same
   NAME_TRN_ID of the request that the NBNS is telling the requestor
   to wait longer to complete.  The RR_NAME is the name from the
   request, if any.  If no name is available from the request then
   it is a null name, single byte of zero.

   The TTL field of the ResourceRecord is the new time to wait, in
   seconds, for the request to complete.  The RDATA field contains
   the OPCODE and NM_FLAGS of the request.

   A TTL value of 0 means that the NBNS can not estimate the time it
   may take to complete a response.

4.3.  SESSION SERVICE PACKETS

4.3.1.  GENERAL FORMAT OF SESSION PACKETS

   All session service messages are sent over a TCP connection.

   All session packets are of the following general structure:

                        1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3

   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |      TYPE     |     FLAGS     |            LENGTH             |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |                                                               |
   /               TRAILER (Packet Type Dependent)                 /
   |                                                               |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   The TYPE, FLAGS, and LENGTH fields are present in every session
   packet.




NetBIOS Working Group                                          [Page 29]

RFC 1002                                                      March 1987


   The LENGTH field is the number of bytes following the LENGTH
   field.  In other words, LENGTH is the combined size of the
   TRAILER field(s).  For example, the POSITIVE SESSION RESPONSE
   packet always has a LENGTH field value of zero (0000) while the
   RETARGET SESSION RESPONSE always has a LENGTH field value of six
   (0006).

   One of the bits of the FLAGS field acts as an additional, high-
   order bit for the LENGTH field.  Thus the cumulative size of the
   trailer field(s) may range from 0 to 128K bytes.

   Session Packet Types (in hexidecimal):

           00 -  SESSION MESSAGE
           81 -  SESSION REQUEST
           82 -  POSITIVE SESSION RESPONSE
           83 -  NEGATIVE SESSION RESPONSE
           84 -  RETARGET SESSION RESPONSE
           85 -  SESSION KEEP ALIVE

   E               7   Length extension, used as an additional,
                       high-order bit on the LENGTH field.

   RESERVED      0-6   Reserved, must be zero (0)

5.  PROTOCOL DESCRIPTIONS

5.1.  NAME SERVICE PROTOCOLS

   A REQUEST packet is always sent to the well known UDP port -
   NAME_SERVICE_UDP_PORT.  The destination address is normally
   either the IP broadcast address or the address of the NBNS - the
   address of the NBNS server it set up at initialization time.  In
   rare cases, a request packet will be sent to an end node, e.g.  a
   NAME QUERY REQUEST sent to "challenge" a node.

   A RESPONSE packet is always sent to the source UDP port and
   source IP address of the request packet.

   A DEMAND packet must always be sent to the well known UDP port -
   NAME_SERVICE_UDP_PORT.  There is no restriction on the target IP
   address.

   Terms used in this section:

   tid -            Transaction ID.  This is a value composed from
                    the requestor's IP address and a unique 16 bit
                    value generated by the originator of the
                    transaction.

5.1.3.  M-NODE ACTIVITY

   M nodes behavior is similar to that of P nodes with the addition
   of some B node-like broadcast actions.  M node name service
   proceeds in two steps:

   1.Use broadcast UDP based name service.  Depending on the
     operation, goto step 2.

   2.Use directed UDP name service.

   The following code for M nodes is exactly the same as for a P
   node, with the exception that broadcast operations are done
   before P type operation is attempted.

5.1.4.  NBNS ACTIVITY

   A NBNS node will receive directed packets from P and M nodes.
   Reply packets are always sent as directed packets to the source
   IP address and UDP port number.  Received broadcast packets must
   be ignored.

5.2.  SESSION SERVICE PROTOCOLS

   The following are variables and should be configurable by the
   NetBIOS user.  The default values of these variables is found in
   "Defined Constants and Variables" in the Detailed
   Specification.):

   - SSN_RETRY_COUNT - The maximum number TCP connection attempts
     allowable per a single NetBIOS call request.

   - SSN_CLOSE_TIMEOUT is the time period to wait when closing the
     NetBIOS session before killing the TCP connection if session
     sends are outstanding.

   The following are Defined Constants for the NetBIOS Session
   Service.  (See "Defined Constants and Variables" in the Detailed
   Specification for the value of these constants):

   - SSN_SRVC_TCP_PORT - is the globally well-known TCP port
     allocated for the NetBIOS Session Service.  The service accepts
     TCP connections on this port to establish NetBIOS Sessions.
     The TCP connection established to this port by the caller is
     initially used for the exchange of NetBIOS control information.
     The actual NetBIOS data connection may also pass through this
     port or, through the retargetting facility, through another
     port.

5.2.1.  SESSION ESTABLISHMENT PROTOCOLS

5.3.  NetBIOS DATAGRAM SERVICE PROTOCOLS

   The following are GLOBAL variables and should be NetBIOS user
   configurable:

   - SCOPE_ID: the non-leaf section of the domain name preceded by a
     '.'  which represents the domain of the NetBIOS scope for the
     NetBIOS name.  The following protocol description only supports
     single scope operation.

   - MAX_DATAGRAM_LENGTH: the maximum length of an IP datagram.  The
     minimal maximum length defined in for IP is 576 bytes.  This
     value is used when determining whether to fragment a NetBIOS
     datagram.  Implementations are expected to be capable of
     receiving unfragmented NetBIOS datagrams up to their maximum
     size.

   - BROADCAST_ADDRESS: the IP address B-nodes use to send datagrams
     with group name destinations and broadcast datagrams.  The
     default is the IP broadcast address for a single IP network.


   The following are Defined Constants for the NetBIOS Datagram
   Service:

   - DGM_SRVC_UDP_PORT: the globally well-known UDP port allocated
     where the NetBIOS Datagram Service receives UDP packets.  See
     section 6, "Defined Constants", for its value.

   fragment discard timer is initialized to the value FRAGMENT_TO.
   This value should be user configurable.  The default value is

5.3.4.  PROTOCOLS FOR THE NBDD

   The key to NetBIOS Datagram forwarding service is the packet
   delivered to the destination end node must have the same NetBIOS
   header as if the source end node sent the packet directly to the
   destination end node.  Consequently, the NBDD does not reassemble
   NetBIOS Datagrams.  It forwards the UDP packet as is.
