Hallo, Andreas,

Du meintest am 24.11.14:

> doing 'smbclient -L //win2008.dns.domain.name' fails in Samba 4.x. It

Maybe that depends ...

In my LAN this command works with Windows Xp, it doesn't work with  
Windows 7.

It works with both OS versions when I use

        smbclient -L <IP-address> --user=<user>%<password>

or with URL instead of IP-address.

The version

        smbclient -N -L <IP-address>

does therefore (in my LAN) not work with Windows 7 - this OS seems  
always need user's logon name and password.

Viele Gruesse!
