The error "mismatching netbios name" can appear if your client is
pingable but the backup connection fails. If I knew perl I would fix it
but since I don't, I won't. ;) This is just the way the error code
handles the connection failure.
1. user has alternative NIC with it's file sharing option disabled.
2. user is running any type of firewall/intrusion detection software and
it's configuration allows ICMP but not netbios or other transports.
BlackICE default install is a good example.
