nmblookup command examples

mblookup – NetBIOS over TCP/IP client used to lookup NetBIOS names

nmblookup can be used to query a WINS server (in the same way nslookup is used to query DNS servers). To query a WINS server, nmblookup must be called like this:

#nmblookup -U server -R 'name'

For example, running :

#nmblookup -U samba.org -R 'IRIX#1B'

would query the WINS server samba.org for the domain master browser (1B name type) for the IRIX workgroup.
