nmblookup is built for just what you describe.  It's part of the

Ah, "nmblookup -S somePC" works just fine. Thanks!

Then again, apparently not. The fourth octet appears to be wrong, so I suspect the address I'm getting is of some other machine along the way, perhaps a router or something.

So, -S doesn't work. -T doesn't work. -A doesn't work. -M doesn't work. (It'd help a lot if man pages were written to be read by mere mortals . . . :-)

Any idea just what syntax I need to use before I run out of alphabet?
