findsmb <subnet_broadcast_address>
The findsmb program is a Perl script which reports information about SMB-aware systems on a specific subnet. If no subnet is specified the local subnet is used. Items displayed include IP address, NetBIOS name, workgroup or domain name, operating system, and version.
The following example shows the output of executing findsmb as any valid user on a system:
~]$ findsmb
