I've downloaded an run the generic VPN connection from work, and I've created Desktop shortcuts to connect and disconnect. Connecting opens up a Terminal session, which once connected reads:

but that's as far as I can then get. I can't see how or where I would type in the \\<servername> command to open up a shared folder.
All servers are Windows 2003 or 2008. I attempted to connect by selecting 'Places' > 'Network' and entering smb://software/ but still could not see any directories beyond . Any further suggestions?
