List Netbios Names Can't Post

Anyone know how to get a list of every PC running on my domain? I need the Netbios name and not the IP address. I figured I could use NBname, but I can't get it to work.

If you explained a bit more what you meant by "I can't get it to work" then perhaps someone might be able to help you solve the problems.

I am just using the sample code that came with the module so that I can play around with it and when I run what is below all that I get back is the IP addresses. It looks like the first print statement works (print "$ip ";), but the last print statement is ignored (print "$mac_address $domain\\$machine $user";). Any ideas as to why?


use Net::NBName;
use Net::Netmask;

$mask = shift or die "expected: <subnet>\n";

$nb = Net::NBName->new;
$subnet = Net::Netmask->new2($mask);
for $ip ($subnet->enumerate) {
print "$ip ";
$ns = $nb->node_status($ip);
if ($ns) {
for my $rr ($ns->names) {
if ($rr->suffix == 0 && $rr->G eq "GROUP") {
$domain = $rr->name;
if ($rr->suffix == 3 && $rr->G eq "UNIQUE") {
$user = $rr->name;
if ($rr->suffix == 0 && $rr->G eq "UNIQUE") {
$machine = $rr->name unless $rr->name =~ /^IS~/;
$mac_address = $ns->mac_address;
print "$mac_address $domain\\$machine $user";
print "\n";
