    Nbtstat problem

    Whenever I try to use Nbtstat will the following command switches [ -an ] it gives me the following message
    "no names in cache"
    I was wondering can anyone explain to me what this means and how I can fix this.
    I am running Windows 98 on my computer.
    Any help would be really appreciated.

    try typing nbtstat -R to reload the list.

    nmblookup does pretty much the same thing on nix. take a look at this:
    http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=228798
    as for the original question, try nbtstat -A ipaddress
    nbtstat -a if used with names and -A is used with ip addy's.
    hope this helped.

    The help says to use -a for names and -A for ip addresses but I know for a fact that it will work either way (atleast on NT4).

    I reloaded my cache again. But when I issued the same switches again.
    I still tells me the same thing again. Does anyone know of another program that I can download that will do the same thing Nbtstat or maybe even more??

    You should take off the -n. That provides the local machines information. See for yourself by typing nbtstat -n.
    try this: Ping the machine name you are trying nbtstat on, this should give you the ip. Then just use nbtstat -A ipaddress and don't worry about names. Or you can just type this in the run thing at Start>Run:
    \\ipaddress
    or try
    \\computername
    And if they have shares it will display all of them. But just try it with the ip and -A option maybe that will work, or just skip nbtstat and use the start>run thing from above.
    Good luck.

    its not going to be in the cache if you havn't been connected to it lately.

    you have to do like h3r3tic says, ping it to make a connection
