Hi,

When I run a nbtstat -a machinename on most PC's on our LAN there's no 03 entry for the logged on user even though the user is logged on. Have you come across this?

03 is a messenger service mark. Launch messenger service from the services panel.

Are you asking if it will list logged on users?

If that is what you are looking for try psloggedon.exe from pstools (just google pstools, free download)

Else nbtstat -a will only show you the following details ...

The IP address that you are running the command from
The machine name you query
The workgroup / domain the machine you query is on
The MAC address that you ran the query on

Example below ...


Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [10.49.254.183] Scope Id: []

           NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table

       Name               Type         Status
    ---------------------------------------------
    AIGSISEC10     <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
    AIGSISEC10     <20>  UNIQUE      Registered
    R1-CORE        <00>  GROUP       Registered
    R1-CORE        <1E>  GROUP       Registered

    MAC Address = 00-12-3F-3A-F8-DD

Thanks for the quick response. This has cleared up the confusion. The messenger service is stopped for security reasons.

I don't need it. I was just wondering why the 03 information wasn't appearing.
