I don't really understand Test 5.
The command looks odd to me, since -B is to set the broadcast address,
paulxp is your client, and '*' searches for all clients.
On my little home system, with three computers up and all on the same
subnet, this is what I see with nmblookup '*'
INFO: Debug class all level = 3 (pid 2453 from pid 2453)
added interface ip=192.168.0.2 bcast=192.168.0.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
bind succeeded on port 0
querying * on 192.168.0.255
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.0.6 ( 192.168.0.6 )
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.0.2 ( 192.168.0.2 )
Got a positive name query response from 192.168.0.5 ( 192.168.0.5 )
Now, this is broadcast result. That is, my box has sent out a message
on the subnet and these three machines responded, including the local
All three of these machines are linux samba servers, btw.
Try nmblookup '*' and see what you get.
Try nmblookup paulxp and see what you get.
