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 ...
