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
Here's a quick patch
(In reply to comment #1)
> 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
This tar file creation breaking is caused by bug in "-T" option arguments parsing - as described in bug 3974.
