	It uses <a class="citerefentry" href="nmblookup.1.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">nmblookup</span>(1)</span></a>
	and <a class="citerefentry" href="smbclient.1.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">smbclient</span>(1)</span></a>

	information for all machines that respond to the initial 
	<code class="literal">nmblookup</code> for any name: IP address, NetBIOS name, 
	Workgroup name, operating system, and SMB server version.</p><p>There will be a '+' in front of the workgroup name for 
	machines that are local master browsers for that workgroup. There 
	will be an '*' in front of the workgroup name for 
	machines that are the domain master browser for that workgroup. 
	Machines that are running Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 or 
	Windows 98 will 
	not show any information about the operating system or server 
	version.</p><p>The command with <code class="constant">-r</code> option
	must be run on a system without <a class="citerefentry" href="nmbd.8.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">nmbd</span>(8)</span></a>	running. 

	If <code class="literal">nmbd</code> is running on the system, you will 
	only  get the IP address and the DNS name of the machine. To 
	get proper responses  from Windows 95 and Windows 98 machines, 
	the command must be run as root and with <code class="constant">-r</code>
	option on a machine without <code class="literal">nmbd</code> running.</p><p>For example, running <code class="literal">findsmb</code> 
	without <code class="constant">-r</code> option set would yield output similar
	to the following</p><pre class="programlisting">
