Please send an strace of smbclient together with a network
trace. To do the strace, please issue

strace -ttT -o /tmp/smbclient.strace /usr/bin/smbclient //molek-04/lightcycler -U administrator

The interesting output will appear in the file
/tmp/smbclient.strace. For information on how to create a
useful network trace, please take a look at
