Command to view who is the master browser?

I've done this before, but I can't remember the command!

I'm sure I used NET somehow (VIEW?  USE?)  I believe it was NET VIEW /Wrkgrp and then some flag to list the browser elections.

Thanks!

There is a utility available on the windows nt resource kit, other then this there is no way to know who the master browser is.  Are you talking client server or peer to peer network.

all Net View lets you do is veiw the browser list it does not let you see which computer is maintaining that list.  wayneb is right if you have the NT resource Kit the utilities for browsers are browmon.exe and browstat.exe  browmon is menu driven and browstat is command line.  the browstat command you would use is:
   browstat gm <transport> <domain>

note: transport is one of your installed protocols

There is a port of the "samba" unix stuff to windows. It includes
a program called smbclient which will give you the masrer
browser. However, I don't seem to have the link to this port...

   browstat STATUS
or
    net config rdr | find "Workstation"

gives you all available <transport>s, then

    browstat gm <transport <domain>
