smbutil -- interface to the SMB requester SYNOPSIS
smbutil [-hv] command [-options] [args] DESCRIPTION
The smbutil command is used to control SMB requester and issue various commands. There are two types of options -- global and local to the specified command. Global options are as follows: -h Print a short help message. -v Verbose output. The commands and local options are: help command Print usage information about command. lookup [-w host] [-t node_type] [-e] name Resolve the given name to an IP address. The NetBIOS name server can be directly specified via the -w option. The NetBIOS name type can be specified via the -t, the default is to lookup file servers. For a complete list of name types please see "http://support.mi-". The NetBIOS names will be unpercent escaped out if the -e option is specified. status [-ae] hostname Resolve given hostname (IP address or DNS name) to NetBIOS workgroup and system name. All NetBIOS names will be displayed if the -a option is specified. All NetBIOS names will be percent escaped out if the -e option is specified. view [-options] //[domain;][user[:password]@]server List resources available on the specified server for the user. The options are as follows: -A authorize only. -N don't prompt for a password. -G allow guest access. -g authorize with guest only. -a authorize with anonymous only. -f don't share session. identity [-N] //[domain;][user[:password]@]server Display the user's identity as known by the server for the authenticated session. Will not prompt for a password if the -N option is specified. dfs smb://[domain;][user[:password]@]server/DfsRoot[/DfsLink] Display the Dfs referrals for this URL for the authenticated session. statshares [-m mount_path] | [-a] If -m is specified, it prints the attributes of the share mounted at mount_path. If -a is specified, it prints the attributes of all mounted shares. You can not specify both -m and -a together since they are mutually exclusive. FILES

mount_smbfs -- mount a shared resource from an SMB 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] [-U username] [-W workgroup] [-c case] [-d mode] [-f mode] [-g gid] [-n opt] [-u uid] //user@server[:port1[:port2]]/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. Default is 4. -T timeout Timeout in seconds for each request. Default is 15. -U username Username to authenticate with. -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[:port1[:port2]]/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. Optional port1 and port2 arguments can be used to override default values of port numbers used by communication protocols. For SMB over NetBIOS default value for port1 are 139, and port2 are 137. node Path to mount point. FILES
~/.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 It is also possible to use fstab(5) for smbfs mounts (the example below doesn't prompt for a password): //guest@samba/public /smb/public smbfs rw,noauto,-N 0 0 AUTHORS
