Connect CentOS to Windows 7 or 2008

I needed to connect my CentOS system to a Windows 7 machine (which is in a workgroup) quickly.

  • Yum install samba3x
  • Yum install samba3x-client
  • Yum install samba3x-swat

Once installed I was able to connect to a Windows share by typing

smbclient //WindowsNetBIOSName/ShareName –U Username (on WindowsMachine)

You should be prompted for a password for Windows user account. Using ‘get’ command I was able to copy a file to the CentOS machine.
