Hi list,

I've made a small patch for smbtree. With this patch (made against
smbtree.c from Samba release 3.0.24) you can pass the option -H or
--sharetype and then the output from smbtree might look like this:

seb:/usr/src/samba-3.0.24/source$ ./bin/smbtree -b -N --sharetype
                \\MORPHEUS\WELP                 Disk            The ELP folder
                \\MORPHEUS\C$                   Disk (admin)    Default share
                \\MORPHEUS\ADMIN$               Disk (admin)    Remote Admin
                \\MORPHEUS\   Disk            This is a test share from MS Windows 2000
                \\MORPHEUS\HPLaserJ             Print           HP1320 on Sebs Desk, shared via Win2K Machine
                \\MORPHEUS\lj202                Disk            A random driver folder
                \\MORPHEUS\print$               Disk            Printer Drivers
                \\MORPHEUS\IPC$                 IPC (admin)     Remote IPC

With the additional column in the middle showing whether the share is a
Disk, Print or IPC share.

The patch is available here:
