well using windows i can use "find computer" and use the ip to search
for share and mount it.
i just know the ip address and not the netbios name. So, either windows
can connect without using the netbios name or windows somehow finds out
the netbios name corresponding to the ip address.
In case, windows finds out the netbios name corresponding to the ip
address i search for using "Find Computer", i too wanna do the same.
And in case windows can mount the shares without worrying abt the
netbios name, i too wanna do the same.
So, how can i find out the netbios name corresponding to a ip when the
computer is on a different network.
