3.2.3 Initialization

When a nonbrowser server starts up, it MUST start the HostAnnouncementTimer, as specified in section 3.2.2. Whenever the HostAnnouncementTimer fires, the nonbrowser server MUST issue a HostAnnouncement frame.

A nonbrowser server MUST register the NetBIOS name <machine group>[0x00] corresponding to the domain or workgroup within which the nonbrowser server resides. This makes it possible to receive AnnouncementRequest browser frames.

All other browser messages sent to the nonbrowser server with different NetBIOS names MUST be ignored.

The name <ServerName>[0x00] MUST be registered with NetBIOS by the server offering the service.
