NT shares and samba

Linux red hat 7.1 + samba 2.2
I am able to see my linux shares in my NT environment thru samba. How do I do the reverse of it.
i.e to browse my NT shares from Linux machine. Is this possible.

There is a program called LinNeighborhood available at

Similar design to Network Neighborhood.
It should allow you to browse your Windoze shares in a GUI fashion. I downloaded the software, but have not tried it yet. You can find it in the networking section. I think it is available in tar form only.

You can also see your Windoze shares by typing the following command at shell prompt from within your /usr/src/samba/bin directory:

./smbclient -L //<name of windows mahcine>

This should give you a display listing the shares within the system in question.

Good luck.
