Hi Henrik,

'findsmb' is worth a try - but I don't use it! I haven't proved, if it is
still under development at all...
You can also try 'smbtree' (my favourite).
Have a look at the manpage.
Something like the following should initially work:
   smbtree -Uvaliduser%thepassword

Here a user and its password is requested - to 'browse' all the
(allowed) network shares...
You can fine-tune the result (a bit).
Best wishes - Guenter

PS - and always think twice - is there a 'local' or 'master browser'
running - or not? Broadcasts can only reach the local subnet!
