smbclient

Hi,

I can't do very simple with smbclient:
With given IP address how could be found the NetBIOS name of a host.

Under Windows this is possible with:
nbtstat -A ip_adress

Thanks,
Rumen

Re: smbclient

Hello Rumen,

Try "nmblookup -A IP"

Generally, samba features are well documented. Depending on your Linux distribution, you can find the general documentation in /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/htmldocs, or /usr/share/doc/samba/... or /usr/doc/samba/...

To begin with "simple" samba client features, try to read the following manpages :

man nmblookup
man smbclient
man smbmount

Good luck

Kodjo
