The -M lookup *only* works locally. (There's an interesting work-around
to this that Mike included in jCIFS. jCIFS can query a DMB which, unlike
WINS, does keep a list of LMBs by IP. That way, jCIFS can find LMBs even
if they are not local.)

The command below is good, though, and will send an Adapter Status Query
to the designated node.

...depending upon the OS version. Some Windows flavors do not add the
user name. Annoying.
