    linux viewing other linux w samba client


    I have to freebsd boxes, this could be linux though, I am unable to view them as network servers under gnome. I have smbclient installed and the server is running fine smbd, nmbd. What gives? Windows machines can see them just fine and browse but unix to unix, freebsd or linux it doesnt matter they just cant see eachother

    smbclient -L //192.168.x.x

    the ip is the machine you would like to see.

    Also you need to specify a password for it.

    Example user = test password = test

    then use

    smbclient -L //192.168.x.x -U test
    Password: test

    You'll see al the shares on your network.

    Like this for example:

    smbclient -L //192.168.0.5 -U root
    Password:
    Domain=[ATHOME] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.5]
