Is there an equivalent to the NET.exe suite for linux systems with which I can do net view queries for example?

Samba ships a net executable itself. From the man page:

The Samba net utility is meant to work just like the net utility available for windows and DOS.

One thing I found is smbtree as an equivalent for NET VIEW.
