If you reply to the list other people more knowledgeable than I can 
chime in.

You can supply a username and password to smbclient if it's required.  
smbclient -L localhost -U <username>

In general to get help on using a command there are two nice methods,
    for quick help on usage do: <command> --help
    for the manual page of the command: man <command>
