The smbclient program is doing exactly what you have asked it to. It is 
showing you a list of all of the services on the machine you specified. 
It is also showing you the contents of your browse list.

 From your first e-mail it sounds like you want to actually connect to a 
share on the machine. You can do this by using the smbclient command in 
a fashion similar to:

	smbclient //SERVER/SHARE

where SERVER is the server's netbios (computer name) and SHARE is the 
service on the server.

I hope this helps,
