So, implement your own NETBIOS stack is your only solution (if you don't want 
to have to configure your "ping" hosts). But I'm not sure NETBIOS is supported 
on all platform (for name resolutions). It's sure for Windows ones, Linux use 
it for Samba, but I don't know if tools like ping do it.

"NETBIOS name service" is not very difficult to implement, but it will only

I already use DHCP with a device name. I can see the device name in DHCP 
server table (WIN NT 4.0 server). But I can't ping on this name. In some 
situations, I don't have a DHCP server.
