This page answers the same question; the short answer is "smbtree".  It should work the same on Fedora.

This assumes Samba is working and you are listing all the Windows computers on your network (and Linux computers running Samba).

It is possible to have a network of Linux computers that don't advertise themselves in any way, then you would just have to know.  From a security standpoint, that's a good thing.

you probably want to use something like;
# net status shares
# smbstatus

I think this is more like what you are after, if you want to list all the servers then use smbtree or findsmb.

When I do findsmb, it only shows 2 printers in our network but smbtree shows everything.
