Question How do you test samba user authentication with smbclient?


The login test you can do with smbclient? I can not remember the syntax... something like smbclient -L username

Anybody know what I'm talking about?

smbclient //<ServerName> -U <username>
Then it must ask for a password.

This will help you in the login test.

Hope it helps.

Regards,
Ash
