JSI Tip 3976. NetView freeware displays a filtered list of computers that are visible on your network.

Marty Lists bring us NetView.

The readme contains:

Network View - version 1.10

Displays a list of all machines visible in the specified domain, based on role.

The syntax of this command is:

NetView.exe \[/NTW\] \[/NTS\] \[/PDC\] \[/BDC\] \[/PRINT\] \[/RAS\] \[/SQL\] \[/TIME\] \[/9x\]
   \[/HEX:0xXXXXXXXX\] \[/DOMAIN:domain\] \[/T\] \[/B\] \[/TABS\]

 /NTW will include NTx/200x workstations.
 /NTS will include NTx/200x servers.
 /PDC will include NTx/200x primary domain controllers.
 /BDC will include NTx backup domain controllers.
 /PRINT will include print queue servers.
 /RAS will include remote access servers.
 /SQL will include Microsoft SQL Servers.
 /TIME will include all Time sources.
 /9x will include Windows 95 and later. (Only when sharing is enabled.)
 /HEX: allows you to specify your own bit mask.  Use /HEX: /? for more details.

 Multiple switches can be specified, separate each with a space.

 /DOMAIN: allows you to specify a different domain or workgroup.
 /T also displays the primary machine type (Server, Workstation, PDC, etc.)
 /B displays the output in bare format (useful when scripting)
 /TABS separates columns with tabs instead of spaces (useful when importing)

 An argument of /? or -? displays this syntax and returns 1.
 A successful completion will return 0.
