Why Netbios still required for Wincollect

    Hi,
    As part of PCI 3, there is a requirement to disable NetBios. We have a mix of standalone and managed wincollect (7.2.9) deployment and it seems NetBios ports (137-139) is required for hostname resolution.

    Is there an option to replace NetBios with any other secure protocol? We don't want to change the existing setup.
