smbmount is a tool used to mount SMB shares.

Version: 2.0.7

Status: Ported





This program is called in two different instances.


First, it will be called when you select a computer in on the Network screen. In this instance, it will enumerate the shares on a given computer, and will create mount points for each of them in /net/computername (which was previously created by nbtscan). It will also create the specified smb.conf (???)



smbmount -b /net/server_name -L server_name -U guest -N -s /hosts/smb.conf C
smbmount -b /net/ATHENS -L ATHENS -U administrator -N -s /hosts/smb.conf C 


The second call is when you select a share using the remote. In this instance, it will actually mount the remote share on the corresponding mount point. The actual call is:


smbmount //ATHENS/my_share /net/ATHENS/my_share -o password=,username=administrator,ro M




Although smbmount's built-in help doesn't show it, there's actually a second "help" buried in the executable:

Usage: service <password> [options]
Version 2.0.7
	-s smb.conf           pathname to smb.conf file
	-O socket_options     socket options to use
	-R name resolve order use these name resolution services only
	-M host               send a winpopup message to the host
	-i scope              use this NetBIOS scope
	-N                    don't ask for a password
	-n netbios name.      Use this name as my netbios name
	-d debuglevel         set the debuglevel
	-P                    connect to service as a printer
	-p port               connect to the specified port
	-l log basename.      Basename for log/debug files
	-h                    Print this help message.
	-I dest IP            use this IP to connect to
	-E                    write messages to stderr instead of stdout
	-U username           set the network username
	-L host               get a list of shares available on a host
	-t terminal code      terminal i/o code {sjis|euc|jis7|jis8|junet|hex}
	-m max protocol       set the max protocol level
	-W workgroup          set the workgroup name
	-T<c|x>IXFqgbNan      command line tar
	-D directory          start from directory
	-c command string     execute semicolon separated commands
	-b xmit/send buffer   changes the transmit/send buffer (default: 65520)


To connect to a network share, you can try the next commands after you connected to the device via telnet:


mkdir /hosts/home
smbmount // /hosts/home rw


Note that you have to use the IP address of the server! (???)
