Hi all,

I am facing a problem in reading the file contents using smbclient.

Command:: bin/smbclient //localhost/ubuntu -Ubase%base_system

The smb prompt appears, when read the file without smbclient it contains
some data, but when try to read through smbclient ie. "print <filename>"
it erases all data present inside the file.

Why is this happening and how to read and write to file using smbclient.

Please help me ASAP.
