If the server is a Windows server and the client is a Solaris 9 system,
Samba will be of limited use to you.  Samba is, primarily, a server

Samba *does* provide the smbclient tool, but smbclient is a command-line
tool only.  If you wish to mount the Windows share on Solaris, you will
to find out whether Solaris 9 has a native CIFS filesystem client.

Finally, your questions belong on the samba at samba.org mailing list.
samba-technical mailing list (this is) is for in-depth discussions of
protocol behaviors and implementation.
