DESCRIPTION

The nsmb.conf file contains information about the computers, users, and shares or mount points for the SMB network protocol.

The configuration hierarchy is made up of several sections, each section containing a few or several lines of parameters and their assigned values. Each of these sections must begin with a section name enclosed within square brackets, similar to:

The end of each section is marked by either the start of a new section, or by the abrupt ending of the file, commonly referred to as the EOF. Each section may contain zero or more parameters such as:

where key represents a parameter name, and value would be the parameter’s assigned value.

The SMB library uses the following information for section names:

A) [default]
B) [SERVER]
C) [SERVER: USER]
D) [SERVER: USER: SHARE]

Possible keywords may include:

"Keyword Section Comment"
"A B C D"
addr "- + - -" "IP or IPX address of SMB server"
charsets "- + + +" "local:remote charset pair"
nbns "+ + - -" "address of NetBIOS name server (WINS)"
nbscope "+ + - -" "NetBIOS scope"
nbtimeout "+ + - -" "timeout for NetBIOS name servers"
password "- - + +" "plain text password used to access the given share"
retry_count "+ + - -" "number of retries before connection is marked as broken"
timeout "+ + - -" "SMB request timeout"
workgroup "+ + + +" "workgroup name"

FILES

/etc/nsmb.conf The default remote mount-point configuration file.

EXAMPLES

What follows is a sample configuration file which may, or may not match your environment:
# Configuration file for example.com
[default]
workgroup=SALES
# The ’FSERVER’ is an NT server.
[FSERVER]
charsets=koi8-r:cp866
addr=fserv.example.com

All lines which begin with the ‘#’ character are comments and will not be parsed. The "default" section describes the default workgroup or domain, in this case "SALES". The next section depicted here as "FSERVER", defines a server section and then assigns it a charset which is only required when Cyrillic characters are not used. The hostname value, "fserv.example.com", is also assigned in this section.

COMPATIBILITY

At the time of this writing, the IPX protocol remains unsupported. Future
.Fx releases are expected to support this.
