Linux equivalent to that of Windows's "My Network Places"?


Is there a Linux equivalent to Windows's "My Network Places"? Where one can view other machines connected to the local network, and access their "Shared" folders and files.
Been using Linux for a while now, but never figured that one out yet. Anyone know of anything like this?

If you are using KDE, open Konqueror and look through the network shares. It also depends on the network, for instance if the rest of the network is Windows you'll need Samba.

Using FC9 you can launch "nautilus", then click on computer, select places and then network. You will then be able to browse available networks. Hope this helps.

This being Linux, you can also use the command-line.
Code:
smbtree
will list all available SMB (i.e. Windows networking) shares on the LAN.

You can get more information on a particular host from using:
Code:
smbclient -L //hostname
