[ NNSquad ] Re: Is network unneutrality necessarily bad?

True -- but it would be far better if we can simply assume encrypted paths and thus be able to maintain direct relationships between end points and objects. If I want to read my photos into a directory I should need to do any setup -- just specify a name of the directory. One consequences of the combination of the lack of encryption, the lack of stable naming and the twisting billing passages that compromise today’s computing/connectivity milieu is that we’ve lost the ability to assume an app “just works”. Instead we must make sure that every little switch and setting and billing relationship along the path is just right.


This is a bit off list because it’s about the insidious lack of neutrality that we’ve become inured to so it there won’t be rage until people can step back and recognize the NN they’ve always known.

But this is encapsulated in the remote desktop connection, is it not?

So, while you are using netbios, it is not running bare over the

Internet.  In other words, an access-list on the ISP router that

blocks netbios traffic will not affect this at all...
