Server Able To See Other Machines
What I need help with is, from the command prompt on my server, how can I see the other computers on the network...Furthermore, how can I copy files from that network drive onto my server? I would like to do with this without the involvement of my windows machines (as little as possible)
I don't even know how to view other the other computers.
I'm not too up on this stuff, but, presumably, since you mentioned windows computers on the network, you're talking samba shares?
As part of the smbclient package, there is a tool called findsmb, which queries the network for samba servers.
You'll also want to look at nmblookup.
There is an ftp-like client, called smbclient, for file transfers, and you can mount samba shares pretty much like any other volume.
