How to access ftp-like interface or SMB share drive from Linux command line?

An SMB client program provides an ftp-like interface on the command line. You can use this utility to transfer files between a Windows and a Linux client.

1. Install SMB Client on Ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get install smbclient

2. Install SMB Client on CentOS/RHEL

$ yum -y install samba samba-client

3. Connect to share folder using client

$ smbclient //<share-folder-path> -U <user-name>
$ <password>

That’s it. I hope this will help. 🙂
