NAME
     nsmb -- kernel SMB protocol communicator

SYNOPSIS
     pseudo-device nsmb

DESCRIPTION
     This virtual device is used by SMBFS filesystem for actual communication with SMB servers.
     It provides the physical transportation, encapsulating the networking part of SMBFS.  Only
     SMB over TCP/IP is supported at this moment, SMB over NetBIOS is not supported.

     For the SMBFS kernel support to work, it's necessary to have both this pseudo-device and
     file-system SMBFS configured into kernel.

SEE ALSO
     mount_smbfs(8)

HISTORY
     This driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4.  In NetBSD, this first appeared in NetBSD 2.0,
     together with rest of SMBFS support.
