If you try to connect a display node via Microsoft Windows NT to a Citect Server, the display node will fail the find the server. This is because Windows NT RAS does not support NetBIOS group names correctly. 

You can tell Citect not to use group names wiith the parameter [LAN] GroupName=0 on the Display Node. With this parameter set, Citect will not add the group name 'CITECT STATION50' but will add the node name that is specified by the parameter [LAN] node=<name>. This name must be unique on a network otherwise you will get the error message "Cannot add Netbios Name <name>" if two computers startup with the same name.
