NAME
     mount_smbfs -- mounts a shared resource from an SMB file server

SYNOPSIS
     mount_smbfs [-I host] [-M cmode[/smode]] [-N] [-O cowner[:cgroup]/sowner[:sgroup]]
		 [-R retrycount] [-T timeout] [-U user] [-W workgroup] [-d mode] [-f mode]
		 [-g gid] [-h] [-n opt] [-u uid] //[workgroup;][user[password]@] server[/share]
		 path

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_smbfs command mounts a share from a remote server using SMB/CIFS protocol.

     The options are:

     -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.

     -M cmode[/smode]
	     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 the
	     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-
	     tion.

     -T timeout
	     Timeout in seconds for each request.

     -U user
	     Specifies the user name to be used in the authentication request.

     -W workgroup
	     Specifies the workgroup to be used in the authentication request.

     -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 dir mode adds execute permission where the file
	     mode gives read permission.

	     Note that these permissions can differ from the rights granted by SMB server.

     -h      Prints a help message, much like the SYNOPSIS above.

     -n opt  Set opt option to affect file name lookups.  opt can be one of the following:

	     Value    Meaning

	     long     No long names.  Server supports only "8.3" format.

     -u uid, -g gid
	     User id and group id assigned to files.  The default is owner and group id from
	     directory where the volume is mounted.

     //[workgroup;][user[password]@] 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.
	     Workgroup and/or password may be specified here.  If user is omitted the logged in
	     user id will be used.  Omitting share is an error when mount_smbfs is run from the
	     command line, otherwise a browsing dialogue is presented.

     path    Path to mount point.

FILES
     ~/.nsmbrc	    Keeps static parameters for connections and other information.  See
		    ./examples/dot.nsmbrc for details.

EXAMPLES
     The following illustrate how to connect to an SMB server SAMBA as user GUEST to mount
     PUBLIC:

	   mount_smbfs -I samba.mydomain.com //guest@samba/public /smb/public

BUGS
     Please report bugs to Apple.
