LAN monitoring app to get a host's NetBios name + IP address?

LAN monitoring app to get a host's NetBios name + IP address?

Post by Frédéric Fau » Tue, 28 Sep 1999 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm looking for an application that would correct Windows' TCPNetView applet
(www.enet.ru/~qorlach/netview), which doesn't return all hosts that are
connected to our LAN, and returns 000000 as MAC address for all non-Windows
hosts.

Ideally, the applet should return both the NetBios name (if available) and its
hostname as input on the host (instead of doing a reverse lookup on the DNS).
Any app does that?

Thx for any tip,
FF.

 
 
 

1. Can't ping the host name or host IP address from host.

Hello there,
I have the unusual problem of not being able to ping the machines host name
or host IP address from the host.
I've checkout the network settings and I can't seem to find any problems.  I
am able to ping & telnet to the machine
from the network.  Seems quite strange.

Any help would be really appreciated.

thanks,

Owen.

Here is output from ifconfig
