Hi Brian,
Don't have Tru64, but on HPUX, smbclient for 2.0.7 lists itself as
version 2.0.7, so I would say yes, you have somehow still got an 
old version of smbclient on your machine.

Subject: smbclient -b parameter

I've got problems getting files from a win2000 server using smbclient
(see subject "SMBClient & Windows 2000"). I've tried using the -b
parameter (documented in the online man pages) to change the buffersize
in case that might be the problem but the smbclient I'm running doesn't
recognise it. I've installed 2.0.7 on Compaq Tru64, smbclient declares
itself as 1.9.18p7.

Has it been removed or have I somehow got an old version of smbclient?
