Question Where is the "My Network Places" in Linux ??


on my network there are 4 computers ( 2 Win XP and 1 Suse apart from my FC4 ) and i have samba and everything configured. The XP computers can see me ( still cant access me though :s ) but the question remains, how can i see them ?? In Nautilus i go to the Network option from Computer and it just shows me "Windows Networ" which is an empty folder. How and where can i atleast see my Friends XP computers ?

The smbclient command will show you the "visible" clents and their available shares. I don't recall the syntax at the moment, but I remember one command is

smbclient -L <hostname>

to see the shares for a known client.

For a graphical app there's LinNeighborhood that does all this for you. If it didn't come with your distro you can download it from

FYI:
The equiv console command of windows net view is findsmb and to see all of the shares in a tree you can use the command smbtree.
