Question Mount Windows share on Redhat, WITHOUT Samba?

Hi,

Please let me know whether I can mount a windows share on Redhat, which does not have Samba installed. The constraint is that I cannot install Samba [Policies!!!!].

Looking forward for a possible solution.

The only way I can think of is smbclient, which may require samba. The other option is to get an NFS server for windows. I believe Microsoft's Windows Services for UNIX has this.
