Which package for Debian Wheezy holds the 'net' command? I am running Raspbian 7 (Debian Wheezy) with samba-common and samba packages installed. But can not locate net.


This answer is correct as written previously:

Install samba-common-bin with

apt-get install samba-common-bin

In the case of Raspbian, peterretief was incorrect. I have just verified it. I had installed samba-common and was unable to use net. after installing samba-common-bin, it works. peterretief also said that there were other ways to accomplish the same thing. As a Raspbian newbie, I would love to know what those are. Some references to articles or man pages would have been quite helpful.

  • I think you meant "peterretief was correct" since he was presumably asking why the answer you have also said is correct was downvoted. "As a Raspbian newbie, I would love to know what those are..." -> Raspbian == Debian, questions about which mostly (including any and all those involving samba) belong on Unix & Linux.

Install samba-common-bin with apt-get install samba-common-bin.

    Why is this answer wrong? net is part of samba common - I don't use it because there are so many tools in Linux that do the same thing Sep 19 '14 at 12:22
