net view/net use

I have Samba installed in my linux box. IP-address is When I want to look up it's shares from Windows I write to command line "net view \\" and I could see all the shares. What is best way to do the same thing from Linux?
And the same with "net use x: \\\homefolder?

From "man smbclient"
-L This option allows you to look at what services are available on a server. You use it as smb-
client -L host and a list should appear. The -I option may be useful if your NetBIOS names don't
match your TCP/IP DNS host names or if you are trying to reach a host on another network.
To mount the share (like mapping a drive):
mkdir /mnt/share
mount -t smbfs //ip.of.the.server/share /mnt/share -o username=USER,password=PASS
