Browse shared folder when you're the only Linux user

smbclient -U userbob //
Under Ubuntu smbclient is part of the samba package. With the version I use (3.0.28a) cd-ing into folders with spaces in the name is a drag. You have to put the folder name in quotes: smb: \Shared\> cd "Marketing and PR"

I am a big fan of command-line fu site because i got some incredible command keys form here. Also you need to visit to complete your task easily. But i literally did not understand the purpose of this. As we have many other commands which can be used for this purpose too.
