The Amiga has a few more file attributes than Unix, so the output from
AmiTCP/IP's ls command is slightly different from that of a Unix one, and I
guess that is enough to confuse smbclient. Install e.g. ls from GNU fileutils
(have a look on
<URL:> and mput
should work fine.

AFAIK, smbclient doesn't log anything anywhere.
