I am trying to use  samba - to transfer a file to an windows 8 machine but it  fails when windows-8 is under work group or domain.
Could you please provide help and let me know the reason for transfer failure.

Steps followed to transfer the file from linux system (2.4 kernel) to windows 8 system.

1) smbclient -U <user name>%<password> -d 3 //<windows 8 ip> <path to shared folder with all permissions> command from terminal.

result: connection is established, prompt changes to smb.

2)mput <file_name>.

Sometimes 0KB file is transferred or samba transfer fails .
