Advanced IP scanner v1.3 seems to be returning the wrong Netbios group name for my NT4 server (but correct groups for the workstations).

for 131.227.111.5 is returns netbios group name CIV

but it is in the CPE workgroup. However, it does have machines from the CES and CIV workgroup connecting to it.

See here for the output of a NBTSTAT command from the same machine that is running IPScan (running Win98se).

C:\WINDOWS>nbtstat -a 131.227.111.5

Is is perhaps picking up the last of the <00> GROUP entry rather than the <1E> GROUP line.

Here is the Export from the Advanced IP scanner - I selected the computer from the list and exported as text. I edited it a bit in notepad to get it to fit this window.

IP Status Name Ping time

So you can see that it has CIV listed as the group name. Now maybe I am missing something but I thought the Netbios groupname would be the group that the machine in configured in under Control Panel/Network settings.
