Netbios seems to be broken for me.

I have a NAS unit that I get to with smb://192.168.1.3 in the Connect to Server section in the Finder | Go menu.

It comes back to allow me to enter a Username and Password but then I just get an error message.

I have tried the documented fix of:-

echo "[default]" | sudo tee -a /etc/nsmb.conf
echo "port445=both" | sudo tee -a /etc/nsmb.conf

The file is created with the above correctly written to it but this makes absolutely no effect. Tried multiple reboot etc and even tried it on a real MacBook but all to no effect.

Using beta 6, I didn't try with beta 5 but wish I had to see if this is new to me.
