NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for mount_smbfs (netbsd section 8)

MOUNT_SMBFS(8)			   BSD System Manager's Manual			   MOUNT_SMBFS(8)

     mount_smbfs -- mount a shared resource from an SMB/CIFS file server

     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

     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 con-
	     version.  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 connec-

     -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 follow-

	     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.

	     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

     node    Path to mount point.

     /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.

     The following example illustrates how to connect to SMB server SAMBA as user GUEST, and
     mount shares PUBLIC and TMP:

	   mount_smbfs -I samba.mydomain.com //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


     Support for SMBFS first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4.  It has been ported to NetBSD and first
     appeared in NetBSD 2.0.

     Matt Debergalis <deberg@NetBSD.org>, and
