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

     mount_smbfs — mount a shared resource from an SMB file server

     mount_smbfs [-N] [-o options] [-d mode] [-f mode] [-h]
		 //[domain;][user[:password]@]server[/share] path

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

     The options are as follows:

     -N	     Do not ask for a password.	 At run time, mount_smbfs reads the
	     ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf file for additional configuration
	     parameters and a password.	 If no password is found, mount_smbfs
	     prompts for it.

     -o	     Options passed to mount(2) are specified with the -o option fol‐
	     lowed by a comma separated string of options. See the mount(8)
	     man page for possible options and their meanings. Additional
	     options supported by the mount_smbfs are as follows:

		     Indicate to the Carbon subsystem that this volume is not
		     to be displayed to the user.

		     Set flags on the mountpoint to indicate that the volume
		     has been mounted by the automounter.

		     Don't use NTFS Streams even if they are supported by the

	     soft    Make the mount soft.  Fail file system calls after a num‐
		     ber of seconds.

		     Turn off using notifications for this volume.

     -f mode, -d mode
	     Specify permissions that should be assigned to files and directo‐
	     ries.  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.

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

     //[domain;][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.	Domain 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.

     nsmb.conf	Keeps static parameters for connections and other information.
		See man nsmb.conf for details.

     This example shows the proper url to use to mount the share PUBLIC from
     the SMB server myserver :

	   mkdir /smb/public
	   mount -t smbfs //username:userpass@myserver/PUBLIC /smb/public

     This example shows the proper url to use to mount the share PUBLIC from
     the SMB server myserver as guest:

	   mkdir /smb/public
	   mount -t smbfs //guest:@myserver/PUBLIC /smb/public
     Note: You should always use the system mount command and never call
     mount_smbfs directly.

     mount(2), nsmb.conf(5), mount(8), umount(8)

     Please report bugs to Apple.
