I understand the "Function Discovery" side and wsdd (which is fine for
local same network discovery somewhat similar to Network Neighborhood).
I'm saying that even without that if I browse to just a computer in
Windows Explorer, I get to see the shares that I have access to. I'd
like that sort of feature in smbclient (if possible).
smbclient's "way" has relied on NT1/SMB1 stuff. Just wondering if
anyone know how to make this work the Windows way.
