The NCBS and SESSIONS settings found in the [MS$NETBEUI] section of the PROTOCOL.INI file, affect only the real mode NetBEUI; the protected mode NetBEUI (VNB.386) ignores these settings and allocates resources dynamically from the Virtual Memory Manager's heap.

The real mode NetBEUI is used only if the commands NET START NETBEUI or NET START FULL are issued before Windows for Workgroups is started. Otherwise, the protected mode NetBEUI and redirector are used, freeing up more conventional memory.
