This manual page documents briefly the nmbscan command.

nmbscan scans the shares of a SMB/NetBIOS network, using the NMB/SMB/NetBIOS protocols. It is useful for acquiring information on a local area network for such purposes as security auditing.

It can obtain such information as NMB/SMB/NetBIOS/Windows host name, IP address, IP host name, Ethernet MAC address, Windows user name, NMB/SMB/NetBIOS/Windows domain name, and master browser.

It can discover all the NMB/SMB/NetBIOS/Windows hosts on a local area network by using the hosts lists maintained by master browsers.
