smbclient -L servername
will show you all available samba / windows shares

To connect to a windows or samba share type

smbclient \\\\servername\\share -U username

you will be asked for your windows password for the username specified

once connected smbclient works like an FTP client

type help for a list of commands.

Keep in mind, you'll need a leading "\" before spaces (ex: My\ Filename.txt).

or alternatively put your filenames in quotes eg "My Filename.txt"

once connected
to copy directories and subdirectories type
