I have been using the nmblookup command in Samba to resolve IP addresses 
into NetBIOS names via the WINS server. This was works fine for the PCs 
on our NT Domain, but obviously it does not help with Macintoshes. I 
know there are a few packages out there, such as CAP and netatalk, that 
provide Appletalk services on Linux. Does anyone out know if these 
packages, or perhaps another, have a similar command to nmblookup which 
allows the resolution of Macintosh machine names for a given IP address?
