I can connect to a Samba share on my Raspberry Pi with the following:-

open smb://MilliwaysPi4.local/pi

This then prompts for a password.
macOS offers to remember the password in Keychain, BUT this still needs to be confirmed, and it attempts to use my macOS username, so needs to be edited.

Is there a way to specify the password in the command line?

You can specify a username and password before the domain name:

open smb://username:password@MilliwaysPi4.local/pi
