Does anyone know what nmdb is and what it specifically does, i believe it is name resolution, is it just for the computers on my network, so they can find me?

They are just asking you what your computer name is and if you have any shares that are browseable. Nothing to worry about.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
