Most of my understanding of netbios is from examining the ipf filter
log entries that the script kiddies so kindly insure that I have
plenty of. They always try to connect from port netbios-ns to port
netbios-ns. I assume the src_port == dst_port is important. If NAT
remaps that port on the NetBSD side things may not work.
