Using smbclient

Hi all, i've been using Samba for some time now and still learning new things. But for the life of me i cant find and info on how to login to the server using my Linux laptop. I can login to it with the windows, but i dont know how with linux.

I've used the command smbcliet -L serverip -A but that doesnt seem to be the right command. Can anyone help me? Thanx in advance!

What are you trying to do? Are you trying to mount a share from the Windows to a Linux directory?
