I have a Windows XP machine on a 2003 native domain. I currently have NetBIOS over tcp/ip disabled.

If I run an nbtstat -c I get a few cached entries in the remote table...if I run an nbtstat -n for local cache, the table is empty.

I have already rebooted, etc....but what I want to know is what is populating the remote table?

I have WINS on the network for now, but the local client is not set to look at the WINS servers and as I mentioned netbios over tcp/ip is off.

If the lifetime is -1, the entries are static and originating from lmhosts.
Else they can be collected by receiving name/service broadcasts.

what is doing the broadcasting? Wins? The lmhosts file is disabled and empty anyways.

NetBIOS broadcasts are sent by those who have something to offer - their name, a server service, etc. If there is no WINS, that is. A configured WINS should shut them up, but not sure about that.
