It is a weird combination, but basically I want to see all the shares
available on a computer not on my network. Thats why I was using the -L
option, which needs the name of the computer.
Another question - If I have the NetBIOS name of a computer on another
network how can I resolve it to an IP if there are no WINS servers? If I know
a host or master on that network can I ask that? I've been fiddling with
nmblookup with no luck!
