I for one will gladly answer a question and then forget all about it. Ask
again next week and I will most likely have no idea who you are. You'd
have to introduce yourself every time. (goldfish syndrome?)

What difference does it make if it is a samba server or a windows smb
server? A goal (at least in my opinion) of samba is to behave like a
windows server does.
The samba client tools connect to a windows smb server or a samba smb
server in the same way. So the docs for your 3rd item should in most cases
also apply to your 4th. Or?
The smb-clients list is pretty quiet, most people use the samba list.
You may want to ask there instead, after taking the mandatory look in the
Your questions are not specific enough for me to even know if I know what
you are asking.
You hinted at something not working with smbclient. I think you have a
greater chance of getting help if you post the exact command used and the
output you get, with a description of your setup (authentication/directory
services could be a lot of things ... AD, LDAP, or just a PDC and then is
the samba box PDC or do you have a separate windows box for that ...)
