smbclient and ip address

I am not able to use ip address in servername instead of netbios name,
smbclient // -P -N
It gives error:
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Called name not present)

but when I use  server netbios name instead of IP address it gets 
connected successfully.
How can I connect to a server through smbclient if I know only the ip 
address of the server?

Thanks in advance.
