View Full Version : [ubuntu] Connecting to a server thru smbclient

November 28th, 2008, 04:09 PM
Hello, I`am running Ubuntu on a Virtual PC, and everything is going fine at work, I want to connect using smbclient to our windows 2003 server in a specific shared folder ip:

However I can list and see all the workgroups and computers using : smbclient -L and just hitting enter on the password field.

however I can also connect and see the directories inside the server thru using the Places connect to server or Network. Also I establish this connection by entering the Workgroup name and my network user&pass.

How do I connect using commandline smbclient like I do using Places-Network??

I`am om Gutsy.
