Hello Walden,

Back in the days of  Netbios and the extremely bad implementation of
it in microsoft products, I always had problems when using more then
12 bytes for any name of a netbios server or share or even usernames.
There is a way to go up to the theoretical maximum of 15 bytes in that
you had to delimit the name by some special hex sequence which I
don't have at hand at the monent, perhaps somebody else does remember.
Personally, I would never use such long names (longer than 12 bytes) in
heterogenous networks which partially rely on netbios resource names.

Just my two (euro-) cents ...

Regards from germany, Philipp Rusch
