According to the documentation, "smbclient //machine/share password -U user 
-N" should work the same as "smbclient //machine/share password -U user".  
However, the former fails with "tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED" 
while the latter connects and gives you a prompt.

> Patch to make -N work as documented

This patch breaks smbclient tar file creation with
    smbclient //server/share -A server.auth -Tc /tmp/server-share.tar
As described in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=176649
Comment 3 Tomasz Ostrowski 2006-07-28 06:50:40 UTC
This tar file creation breaking is caused by bug in "-T" option arguments parsing - as described in bug 3974.
