SMB Authentication and username shortcut
Authored by: hamarkus on Jun 22, '04 03:42:03PM

My guess as to what he meant, is that for (Windows) servers which you can log into (i.e. whose shares you can mount) without having to supply a password but only a valid username, you can use the NETBIOS name as a valid username, so you don't have to know or look up somewhere a valid username.

This is the only thing I can conclude from this hint but I'm sceptical that this is what she or he meant (if there is any meaning to be found at all) since I find it weird that you set up a computer to require a username but not a password and that the NETBIOS name can be used as a valid username.
