     FINDSMB(1)	     UNIX System V (19 November	2002)	    FINDSMB(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  findsmb - list info about machines that respond to SMB  name
	  queries on a subnet

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  findsmb [ subnet broadcast address ]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  This perl script is part of the  Samba suite.

	  findsmb is a perl script that	prints out several pieces of
	  information about machines on	a subnet that respond to SMB
	  name query requests.	It uses	 nmblookup(1) to obtain	this

     OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  subnet broadcast address
	       Without this option, findsmb will probe the subnet of
	       the machine where findsmb is run. This value is passed
	       to nmblookup as part of the -B option

     EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The output of	findsmb	lists the following information	for
	  all machines that respond to the initial nmblookup for any
	  name:	IP address, NetBIOS name, Workgroup name, operating
	  system, and SMB server version.

	  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,	Windows	95 or
	  Windows 98 will not show any information about the operating
	  system or server version.

	  The command must be run on a system without nmbd running. If
	  nmbd 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.

	  For example running findsmb on a machine without nmbd
	  running would	yield output similar to	the following

     AUTHOR    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The original Samba software and related utilities were
	  created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by	the
	  Samba	Team as	an Open	Source project similar to the way the
	  Linux	kernel is developed.

	  The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The
	  man page sources were	converted to YODL format (another
	  excellent piece of Open Source software, available at
	  <URL:ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/>) and updated for the
	  Samba	2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to
	  DocBook for Samba 2.2	was done by Gerald Carter
