Nbtstat is used to display statistics for protocols and connections with TCP/IP using NBT(netbios over TCP/IP).
It is also used to update the LMHOSTS cache and determines your registered name and scope ID. If you go to a DOS prompt and type Nbtstat /? you can see all the switches used with this command!

Netstat is used for current connections and statistics with TCP/IP.You can also findout the switches by going to DOS prompt and typing Netstat /?.
