Microsoft DOS nbtstat command
MS-DOS utility that displays protocol statistics and current TCP/IP connections using NBT (NetBIOS over TCP/IP), which allow the user to troubleshoot NetBIOS name resolution issues. Normally, name resolution is done when NetBIOS over TCP/IP is functioning correctly. It does this through local cache lookup, WINS or DNS server query or through LMHOSTS or Hosts lookup.
The nbtstat command is an external command that is available in the below Microsoft operating systems as nbtstat.exe.
