1.5 Connect from a Remote SMB Client

Now that Samba is working correctly locally, you can try to access it from other clients. Within a few minutes, the Samba host should be listed in the Network Neighborhood on all Windows clients of its subnet. Try browsing the server from another client or 'mounting' it.

Mounting disks from a DOS, Windows or OS/2 client can be done by running a command such as:

 C:\> net use d: \\ servername \service 

Try printing, e.g.

 C:\> net use lpt1: \\servername\spoolservice 
 C:\> print filename
