Hi all !

I hav to run smbclient in a shell script to backup my pc (Win NT) to 
a Solaris WS. The problem is, that anyone can see the account 
information in the process-list at the Solaris WS if smbclient is 
running. With the account i used for backup nearly every files on the 
NT pc are accessible.

Is it possible to give the password via StdIn to smbclient ?

Thanks, Norbert.
