Samba Tips

Its been a long time since I have used samba the fie sharing for Linux on Windows.

smbtree --- find windows machines. See also findsmb

nmblookup -A --- find the windows (netbios) name associated with ip address.

smbclient -L windows_box --- list shares on windows machine or samba server.

mount -t smbfs -o fmask=666,guest //windows_box/share /mnt/share ---

The above command mounts a windows share.

echo 'message' | smbclient -M windows_box

Send popup to windows machine (off by default in XP sp2)
