how to use nmblookup on linux clients


I tried with nmblookup on linux client, but it returned name_query failed to find name XXX. Isn't that the name XXX is the name we put in /etc/hosts? For windows clients, the name is the pc names and it works fine. Does anyone know the solution?

the inbuilt lan browser that comes with the konqueror has a configuration editor for the samba server which configures the nmb look up server also........its really easy to konqueror and click on the lan browser and ensure that smb and lisa daemons are click configure and it takes u to the wizard....
have fun
