'smbclient' with IP-address as input

I have compiled samba-1.9.17p1 and run it under SunOS4. I'd like
to have IP-address as input of 'smbclient'. I've tried several
options like 'smbclient -I xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' but it doesn't work.
If I run smbclient like this 'smbclient -M xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' then
it shows me like following for e.g. :

$ smbclient -M
Added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Get_Hostbyname: Unknown host

Is there such a routine like 'Get_HostbyIP-address' in the source codes?
How can I input the IP-address instead of the hostname?

Thank you in advance.
