IpConfig/NetBIOS Registry Key
You can access the JNIOR using the unit's Hostname. The process required to
convert the text name into the IP address needed to locate the JNIOR on the
network is called Name Resolution . Most computers will attempt to utilize
NetBIOS in resolving a name. By default the JNIOR supports this method. You
may need to specifically enable it on some Linux based machines. This
Registry key can be used to disable the NetBIOS service.
The NBTSTAT command displays the current NetBIOS status for the JNIOR. Note
that the unit registers the Hostname and the default name which is "jr"
combined with the Serial Number (jr615010258 for instance). The latter is
considered to be the unit's Birth Name. Only the first 15 alphanumeric
characters of the current Hostname are used and the default Birth Name is
always available. You can use these names in addition to the IP address to
reach the JNIOR.
When DHCP is enabled the assigned IP address may remain stable for a long
time but it is subject to change. Access using the Hostname will avoid loss
