Using -c Option

When you use the —c option with the nbtstat command, it shows the local NetBIOS remote cache name table. The syntax of the command is:

nbstat –c


The NetBIOS remote cache name table contains five columns: Name, Identifier, Type, Host Address, and life.

The Name column shows the NetBIOS name for remote host machine. The identifier shows two-digit hexadecimal identifier for each NetBIOS name. The identifier denotes the last byte of the NETBIOS name represented in the name column. The Type column shows the type of NetBIOS name, and the host resolves IP address. The life column shows how long each entry will stay in a cache.
