    Hello all,

    im moving away slowly from Windows to Mac...

    so far all the software i was using on Windows is working flawlessly on the Mac...

    The only question i have is the following...

    is there a command in Mac that will show me the computers connected to the windows domain with the description just like the "net view" command in windows work??

    i know i can view the network computers connected, but i can't see the description from them...

    so, any help would be fine...

    Thanks in advance...

    This really isn't the proper forum for this question.

    The most equivalent command on Mac OS is probably 'smbutil'. You can try 'smbutil view //localhost'. But you must have file sharing enabled before that command will work.

    I don't think there is one to be honest. You can see the computers that are shareable or accessible on the finder sidebar but I don't think that's what you're asking


    I work for a company that is quite large and so that view you're talking about is not feasible in work, so I hardly use it myself when I'm on my workstation.
