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

21        <span><strong class="command">nmblookup</strong></span> for any name: IP address, NetBIOS name,
22        Workgroup name, operating system, and SMB server version.</p><p>There will be a '+' in front of the workgroup name for
23        machines that are local master browsers for that workgroup. There
24        will be an '*' in front of the workgroup name for
25        machines that are the domain master browser for that workgroup.
26        Machines that are running Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95 or
27        Windows 98 will
28        not show any information about the operating system or server
29        version.</p><p>The command with <code class="constant">-r</code> option
30        must be run on a system without <a href="nmbd.8.html"><span class="citerefentry"><span class="refentrytitle">nmbd</span>(8)</span></a>  running.
31
32        If <span><strong class="command">nmbd</strong></span> is running on the system, you will
33        only  get the IP address and the DNS name of the machine. To
34        get proper responses  from Windows 95 and Windows 98 machines,
35        the command must be run as root and with <code class="constant">-r</code>
36        option on a machine without <span><strong class="command">nmbd</strong></span> running.</p><p>For example, running <span><strong class="command">findsmb</strong></span> 
37        without <code class="constant">-r</code> option set would yield output similar
