Windows XP - Connection refused error message
There are two things you can try if connecting to a Windows XP machine gives this error.
This switch is in FileBrowser's machine configuration page for each machine.
Try connecting with the switch first OFF then ON because occasionally Windows XP requires
FileBrowser to use the NetBIOS protocol.
