Windows 7 or 8 - Connection refused error message
There are two things you can try if connecting to a Windows 7 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 7 requires
FileBrowser to use the NetBIOS protocol.
