SMB Client

Hands up - I'm a complete noob here at Linux. I've installed a Fedora Core 3 system on my Dell Lattitude C640.

The problem I have is that I can't seem to figure out how to connect to my Win2003 (Active Directory) server.

I've tried stuff like:
smbclient -U sn0rg -I 192.1689.0.2 -k

I'm just not getting anywhere - errors (from memory) are like NT_STATUS_OK (??) and authentication error types too.

I'd consider myself a Windows expert (I'm a Win Technical Architect by trade) so its nothing as daft as a wrong password.

Any one??

No need to say that, it depends to who you compare yourself to... i would say that we are all windows experts :-)

Are you in a workgroup or have you already specified it in smb.conf?

Lol - I thought that might look a bit dry "on screen".... Point taken...

1) Am I in a Workgroup?

A Linux workgroup? No. Didn't know such a thing existed. I'm trying to connect to the Win2003 Domain Controller which has the file shares on.

2) Specified in the SMB.comnf file

Huh? Theres a conf file? :p Thats why I'm in the noob section I guess..

So I draw from that that I can script this stuff in a boot (or logon) time maybe? That's be cool - pointers to SMB specific resources welcomed...
