NBTSCAN utility to list logon username, ip address and MAC address of card

This utility (NBTscan) acomplishes the same as the Windows command: nbtstat -A [ip address]
but it has a major advantage: it also shows the MAC address of the card, and logon name currently associated with the ip/MAC
All you need is to provide the hostname or computer name
You can download the utility from here: http://www.softpedia.com/progMoreBy/Publisher-Stephen-J-Friedl-13044.html

The utility was written by: Stephen J. Friedl (thank you Stephen!)

This is an actual example of the utility (note: in the following example, nbtscan-1.0.35 is the command, which includes the version as part of the name; of course you can rename to something simpler if you prefer). I downloaded the utility to the root of the drive C, to make it easier to access it. Note the logon name on the second line after the word SHARING
