I want to gather netbios names using mac addresses over a local network here at work. I wanted to do this without having to go to each machine physically. I do have the mac address of each computer. Does anybody know how I could do this?

This is all on a Windows 2000 network.

nbtstat -c may work if the computer you put the command into has recently resolved the remote computers names. This command shows the local cache that your computer has for netbios names. Otherwise, you can look up the name with nbtstat -A ip address

Check out Angry IP Scanner:
ipscan.sourceforge.net/ipscan/

It is open source which is always awesome plus it supports plugins. You can just put in your subnet and scan away. It will return NetBios info along with MAC addresses and allow easy export into a variety of formats...

Hope this helps... I would be interested to hear of other tools some people use?

I've got a Perl script to do something very similar, but why bother with bespoke code when there's a ready-written open source app to do it for you.

Hey Bishop...
Are you willing to show that Perl code, or is it a secret? :D I wouldn't mind taking a look at it.

Our chief Perl-monger is on holiday at the moment. I'll have to ask him when he gets back as most of it is his creation
