Connect to XP share from samba debian
I have Samba installed on a debian machine. I can see the shares when I browse using the file manager. I can connect to my share called samba on my debian hard drive using a terminal and the following:


smbclient ////debian//samba -U <usernae ommitted>
I am troubleshooting connecting to the windows shares using the terminal and cannot connect. I can even see a list of folders on the windows machine when I do:


smbclient -L gandolf
so I know that I can connect. The problem is that I cannot connect to the windows machine and get a Samba prompt. How di I connect using the terminal?

I would bet its most likely a domain issue. You may need to make the call like this:

smbclient //server/share -U username/domain

smbclient //server/share -U username/domain
My debian box that has samba on it is called (funny enough) debian. In the case where the XP machine is called gandolf what specifically doe sthe string look like?


smbclient //debian/gandolf-U username/gandolf?
