You will need the IP address of the NT machines to be able to connect to
them; that's the only way the connection can be made. But dialup software
will usually allow you to find out the dynamic address that's been
allocated, once the connection has been made, and you could then enter it by
hand. Or it maybe possible to query the DHCP server by name; I don't know
enough about DHCP...
If you're using Macs, you'll be using the Java viewer; how about making the
NT machines, on connection, add themselves by name and IP address to an HTML
page which would then have links to all the machines' desktops...
