nbtstat -r to show resolved name by Netbios broadcast
Posted on 2013-06-06
I'm trying to understand how Netbios broadcast resolves hostname to IP, then where it saves in cache and how to see the cache table.
I used nbtstat -r to see the cache table of already resolved hostname by a local machine.
First, it doesn't list IP address of the resolved hostnames.
Second, after I just simply pinged hostname 'xxxx', then ran nbtstat -r to see if the local machine put the resolved name-ip pair in its cache, but it's not there.
Is Netbios something we just assume it works and don't have to know about it? Or is there any way to see the cache table with resolved hostname-IP pair and if it really updates
