So, implement your own NETBIOS stack is your only solution (if you don't want to have to 
configure your "ping" hosts). But I'm not sure NETBIOS is supported on all 
platform (for name resolutions). It's sure for Windows ones, Linux use it for Samba, but 
I don't know if tools like ping do it.

I'm interrested in Windows and OS-X (NetBIOS is implemented on these OS).
"NETBIOS name service" is not very difficult to implement, but it will only work on a LAN 
(and a VPN if you use some "master explorers" on), but not on a WAN. Take a look to 
http://ubiqx.org/cifs/NetBIOS.html, it provide most of details.
I'm not interested in WAN. My system is on a LAN. I'll have a look at the link you give me when I have time. Unfortunately, this is not the case right now.

Thanks for your support.
