Re: lan2 don't see server on lan1

Brano:

Can one route NetBios etc. across subnet boundaries with a policy route?

On my Cisco switch (yes, I call my USG 50 Pancho) VLANs can be setup so that particular ports are members of more than one VLAN (not sure if this only works for members of default VLAN 1 at the moment) and in such a case, the NetBios traffic seems to be common because some PCs can find the printers.

No idea about NetBIOS, never tried that. Some answers here »NETBIOS Routable?

Thanks, Brano, your reference asserts that it is routable over the Internet, much to the dismay of many who received malware by that path (something I should have remembered). So it is surely routable between LANs, given appropriate firewall permissions. For example, the default DMZ allow lists NetBIOS.

Subnet broadcasts to .255 might be a different kettle of fish.
