The problem is, DHCP server is in my case a small Linksys router box.
It's rather problematic to check leases there.
Second problem, I have several of these devices, so checking would be
even more troublesome.
So, if there is no better way, I think I would have to check wins.dat
file on a PDC machine (it's also w WINS server), it seems to have a copy
of all netbios names with corresponding IPs.
It's not very readable, but with some parsing I think I will have what I
want (as a html page even to make things easier).
But what if someone like me doesn't use WINS?
smbclient -L would be great if it could show IP addresses, too.
