Specifies the name of the computer whose shared resources you want to see listed.
Specifies that you want to view the names of the computers in another workgroup that share resources.
Specifies the name of the workgroup whose computer names you want to view.
Carries out the NET VIEW command without first prompting you to provide information or confirm actions.
To display a list of computers in your workgroup that share
resources, type NET VIEW without options.
So it is a valid command when used with the correct syntax. I have used it serveral times in the course of my job, though it is only useful in some circumstances!
