Run this from linux:

nmblookup -A ip_address_of_client

This produces a listing of an NT 4.0 client like this:

[root at r1c1n129 bin]# nmblookup -A
Looking up status of
	ESH             <00> -         M <ACTIVE> 
	CENTRAL         <00> - <GROUP> M <ACTIVE> 
	ESH             <03> -         M <ACTIVE> 
	ESH             <20> -         M <ACTIVE> 
	CENTRAL         <1e> - <GROUP> M <ACTIVE> 
	ANDREWE         <03> -         M <ACTIVE> 

Machine (the "<20>" 'fileserver' listing): ESH
Domain (the "<1e> - <GROUP>" 'normal group name' listing): CENTRAL
User (the "<03>" 'messenger service' listing that doesn't match the machine
name): ANDREWE

Can somebody tell me wether is it possible some way to ask windows
nt/2000/xp machines
from linux side about who is currently logged in?
Like identd for example, but with some builtin windows mechanisms?

Sorry, I didnt spent time with reading docs because I am in hurry, so rtfm
with some links
are welcomed :-)

Please CC to me too.
