Using Smbclient - Entering Windows World

This is just quick view of smbclient usage, you should be able to figure it out yourself by using man page. I have used it for my daily task since the real world is always kind of mix.

The -L option basically list out the share available on the host by providing the hostname and -I for specifying IP address, -I is useful when you don't have any name resolver, however you can actualy add a liner to /etc/hosts file which may do the trick.
