We have a small LAN in my office, I use Ubuntu and other PCs have Windows XP and 7 - they have some shared folder on them.

How dp I get a list of Windows's shared folders on Ubuntu in Terminal (using the command line)?

Use smbclient, an "ftp-like client to access SMB/CIFS resources on servers":

smbclient -L hostname -U username

This will list all available shares to that user on the specified machine. More about smbclient is available in the manpage, just call man smbclient.

And on a Mac with the smbutil:

smbutil view [-options] //[domain;][user[:password]@]server

and as @slhck mentioned above use the man smbutil for more information for MacOSX's BSD flavored command line.

the semicolon, ";", must be escaped on the command line \; so it is not interpreted as the end-of-command character see – Scott Robert Schreckengaust Feb 6 '15 at 20:49
The question is about Windows and Ubuntu. . . How is a command on Mac useful in this situation? – zeel Feb 6 '15 at 20:59
@zeel As a Mac user I got redirected here when searching relevant terms, and this has helped me – andy Feb 11 at 14:03
