Interesting idea. In the current implementation we have followed
smbclient usage for the three options for specifying a target server for
the call (since NT/Win2K net command did not offer the equivalent except
for the single example of the NET VIEW command). The target server may be
chosen by specifying one of the following:
-S <server_name> or
-I <ip_address> or in a few cases (e.g. enumerating servers)
So far using none of the above target options will default to using
localhost as the target but that could be changed in a few cases since
there are certainly a few instances in which an smb URL would make sense
e.g. "net share delete smb://server_name/share_name" makes sense but in
those cases we probably should support the same thing without the "smb:" as
well (as the net command from the OS/2 e-Business Server did) i.e.
"net share delete //server_name/share_name"
