NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

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

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     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    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.  See
	     nsmb(8) for theory.

     -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.
	     See nsmb(8) for theory.

     -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

     -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.

	     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.

     node    Path to mount point.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

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

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

     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

     It is possible to use fstab(5) for smbfs mounts:

	   //guest@samba/public    /smb/public	   smbfs  rw,noauto 0	0
