Not quite. I have samba on FreeBSD and would like to see the windows file on anothe machine on the Lan. I do have FreeBsd on another machine (this one) and I can mount the Windows files even on a FastTrack raid array(1) access, copy & write (if I remember right) files. But how to do the same from the *nix on the Lan?On Fri, 07 Feb 2003 19:05:54 -0500 [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:> How can I browse Windows from Unix? > I'm using FreeBSD 4.7, Samba, and KDE3.

The win box should be set up to sharing (in this case the win is the samba/netbios server not the*nix!), for the CLI on your *NIX (samba client in this case) you can use the smbclient program which is an ftp like interface to samba shares(beit on a NIX or a Win box). Not sure if this is what you mean.
Personally, I have never needed it as i have postgres & other stuff on the FreeBSD machine. :))I don't know cygwin (to be run from the win box I reckon; I think this is more for when you want an X-in-a-window from a *NIX client onto a Win box), never tried it.
