Join Greg Sowell for an in-depth discussion in this video Nbtstat, part of Networking Foundations: Protocols and CLI Tools.
- [Instructor] Nbtstat is a command line utility…for troubleshooting name resolution issues with NetBIOS.…Let's face it,…you aren't going to be using NetBIOS.…You're going to be using DNS.…Microsoft supports NetBIOS,…so they feel you should be familiar with it.…I liken this with Cisco…forcing you to be familiar with Frame Relay.…It's a legacy technology…but if you're going to pass the exam,…you need to be familiar.…This is accomplished by adding -C.…
This will list each interface…and the cached entries associated with that interface.…I'm going to go ahead and clear the screen now.…Nbtstat -a will allow you list the name table…along with the associated MAC address for a remote machine.…It is entered in the form of nbtstat -a…and then the computer name.…Here I'll use this local computer.…CAR-BOOTH-01-PC.…You can produce the same results…but use a capital -A…and specify the IP address of the remote machine.…
I'll clear the screen.…I'll issue the command and use the local machine's IP.…Nbstat -A 10.3.25.52.…As you can see,…
Protocols are the lifeblood of modern communication. By the end of this course, you'll know what you need to troubleshoot any network connection and keep the communication flowing.
Note: This course maps to domain 3 of the MTA Networking Fundamentals exam.
