Code:

smbtree -N
You do need the Samba client software installed. I don't think the server is required for this to work.

Wait, isn't this the Linux Networking forum? Yeah, it is :P

Dunno, I don't have a FreeBSD box to play with here. I assume Samba works pretty much the same on any system though. Can you try it to find out?

sorry should've started a new thread in the BSD forum

Code:

The Samba command line tools are not specific to Ubuntu. They are specific to Samba.

If the smbtree command doesn't list SMB hosts on your LAN then either or:
  • something is configured wrong
  • there are none to list

I strongly recommend reading the documentation of your distro. You might start with the man pages.

Edit

http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/...smbtree.1.html

Here are the parts relevant to the command I suggested.

This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

smbtree is a smb browser program in text mode. It is similar to the "Network Neighborhood" found on Windows computers. It prints a tree with all the known domains, the servers in those domains and the shares on the servers.
...
-N|--no-pass

If specified, this parameter suppresses the normal password prompt from the client to the user. This is useful when accessing a service that does not require a password.

Unless a password is specified on the command line or this parameter is specified, the client will request a password.

If a password is specified on the command line and this option is also defined the password on the command line will be silently ingnored and no password will be used.

i know that this thread has been resolved already but for some reason, my latest installation of samba on a box i recently set up tells me that the smbtree command can't be found. what's going on here? what isn't the command there

gdm 08-27-2012 03:57 PM

nbtscan
 
I realize this is an old thread, but here is what I used.

nbtscan 192.168.1.0/24

I just used nmap even thought there more advanced content and makes it a little harder to find a share but it worked for me.
