NBF Dynamically Allocates Memory

A Windows 2000–based computer running NBF allocates the memory necessary to process the requests made by session clients. This means that NBF uses memory only when needed. For example, on a Windows 2000–based computer that does not have an active network connection, very little memory is used by the NBF protocol stack. Because of this dynamic memory management, the installation of NBF on a Windows 2000–based computer does not require additional configuration for number of sessions, packets, or buffers.
