Am trying to resolve an IP address to its Netbios name via the command line or via powershell. the system I am using is Vista SP2 so I do not believe NBLookup.exe will work. are there any alternatives to this?

View the netbios table per connection by executing the following on the command line or in powershell. Do mind that -A is case sensitive. -A resolves IP to name, -a resolves name to IP.

nbtstat -A

Thanks very much. looking at my command history i have been using nbstat rather than nbtstat. just assumed it had been removed from vista! Thanks for the swift response – Tim Alexander Feb 15 '11 at 12:58
