smbclient mput quiet mode?

Hi All.

Needing a quick fix, I decided to copy over a whole directory tree from linux to an nt server.

I used smbclient to get in, then turned on recurse, then did an mput /path/*

It started prompting me to approve EVERY SINGLE FILENAME!

Surely there's some way to tell mput "yes to all"....isn't there?
I've got tons of files in that tree.

Thanks in advance

Talking SMACK!

Too obvious to answer, I guess.

smbclient is SO like FTP, I looked up mget in FTP. Turns out that the command "Prompt" will toggle on and off interactive prompting. It hadn't looked the least bit interesting when I was banging my head against man smbclient and the smbclient help command.
