KVM Samba access


I'm using KVM quite a lot the last few days, trying everything out, and one feature that caught my eye was that I was able to allow the guest os access to a selected directory through samba.
(-smb /dir/to/share)

However, I haven't found a way to access this share in Windows (running as guest), I don't know what server the share is supposed te be one, how the share is called (say I allow access to /home/xxx, would the share be called xxx, of home/xxx?), basically I don't know how to use this KVM feature.

Does anyone know how to use this "Samba access"?

Here's what qemu-system-x86-64 --help says about it:
-tftp prefix allow tftp access to files starting with prefix [-net user]
-smb dir allow SMB access to files in 'dir' [-net user]

Or does anybode know more about the -tftp thing?

Thx in advance


kvm, samba
