mount_smbfs -- mount a shared resource from an SMB/CIFS file server SYNOPSIS
mount_smbfs [-E cs1:cs2] [-I host] [-L locale] [-M crights:srights] [-N] [-O cowner:cgroup/sowner:sgroup] [-R retrycount] [-T timeout] [-W workgroup] [-c case] [-d mode] [-f mode] [-g gid] [-n opt] [-u uid] //user@server/share node DESCRIPTION
The mount_smbfs command mounts a share from a remote server using SMB/CIFS protocol. The options are as follows: -E cs1:cs2 Specifies local (cs1) and server's (cs2) character sets. -I host Do not use NetBIOS name resolver and connect directly to host, which can be either a valid DNS name or an IP address. -L locale Use locale for lower/upper case conversion routines. Set the locale for case conversion. By default, mount_smbfs tries to use an environment variable LC_* to determine it. -M crights:srights Assign access rights to the newly created connection. -N Do not ask for a password. At run time, mount_smbfs reads the ~/.nsmbrc file for additional configuration parameters and a password. If no password is found, mount_smbfs prompts for it. -O cowner:cgroup/sowner:sgroup Assign owner/group attributes to the newly created connection. -R retrycount How many retries should be done before the SMB requester decides to drop the connection. -T timeout Timeout in seconds for each request. -W workgroup This option specifies the workgroup to be used in the authentication request. -c case Set a case option which affects name representation. case can be one of the following: Value Meaning l All existing file names are converted to lower case. Newly created file gets a lower case. u All existing file names are converted to upper case. Newly created file gets an upper case. -f mode, -d mode Specify permissions that should be assigned to files and directories. The values must be specified as octal numbers. Default value for the file mode is taken from mount point, default value for the directory mode adds execute permission where the file mode gives read permission. Note that these permissions can differ from the rights granted by SMB server. -u uid, -g gid User ID and group ID assigned to files. The default are owner and group IDs from the directory where the volume is mounted. //user@server/share The mount_smbfs command will use server as the NetBIOS name of remote computer, user as the remote user name and share as the resource name on a remote server. If your connections are refused, try using the -I option and use a server name of '*SMBSERVER'. node Path to mount point. FILES
/etc/nsmb.conf System wide parameters for smbfs mounts. ~/.nsmbrc Keeps static parameters for connections and other information. See /usr/share/examples/smbfs/dot.nsmbrc for details. EXAMPLES
The following example illustrates how to connect to SMB server SAMBA as user GUEST, and mount shares PUBLIC and TMP: mount_smbfs -I //guest@samba/public /smb/public mount_smbfs -I -E koi8-r:cp866 //guest@samba/tmp /smb/tmp If you keep on getting "Connection reset by peer" errors, try: mount_smbfs -N -I //'*SMBSERVER'/tmp /smb/tmp It is possible to use fstab(5) for smbfs mounts: //guest@samba/public /smb/public smbfs rw,noauto 0 0 SEE ALSO
