SOLVED: OT: How to get IP address via Samba name?

However, apparently the most recent smbclient in Sid no longer shows the IP address. How can I determine the IP address of "somePC" ("smbclient -L" still finds the PC; it just doesn't report the IP address anymore).

Did you try plain old "nmblookup PCname" ? That's the standard usage, no

westk[@westek]:/home/westk> nmblookup alum03
querying alum03 on xxx.yyy.zzz.255
name_query failed to find name alum03

I had to query the DNS server directly:
westk[@garciajo]:/home/westk> nmblookup -U <dns server address> -R "alum03"
querying alum03 on <dns server address>
xxx.yyy.zzz.3 alum03<00>
