22.3.3 Accessing Samba Shares from a Windows Client

To access a share on a Samba server from Windows, open Computer or Windows Explorer, and enter the host name of the Samba server and the share name using the following format:

If you enter \\server_name, Windows displays the directories and printers that the server is sharing. You can also use the same syntax to map a network drive to a share name.
