What client software do I need?

This test is designed to be run from the Unix server to see shares on a
remote NT server/workstation or Win 9x machine with File and Print sharing
active.  In both cases a shared folder/device must be set up on the NT
machine.  "nmblookup" is equivalent to using the "net view" command on a
win9x or winnt machine.  When they say "client software" they are referring
to the samba installation on the workstation/server that you installed in
on.  This test checks to see if your wins server on the Unix box is working
correctly.  If you are not implementing a wins server or trying to get wins
resolution on your Unix box, than skip this test. In order for this test to
work, the ACLIENT must be on the same subnet as you.

Subject: What client software do I need?

Hello everyone.  I apologize in advance for a simple question yet
hard to a beginner. I'm new to SAMBA - 1 1/2 days old.

I'm in the process of configuring/testing SAMBA in our
RISC test box. I am now stuck on TEST 5 below.

TEST 5:-------run the command "nmblookup -B ACLIENT '*'"You should get
the PCs IP address back. If you don't then the clientsoftware on the PC
isn't installed correctly, or isn't started, or yougot the name of the
PC wrong. If ACLIENT doesn't resolve via DNS then use the IP address of
theclient in the above test.

Exactly what client software do I need to install/configure my NT?  I've
read all the documentations
I could find and yet there is no metion about the client software
mentioned in TEST 5.

Any suggestion or recommendation is appreciated.
