       authenticates  the  invoking  HP-UX user on the CIFS fileserver server,
       thereby enabling the user to access shared directories  on  the	server
       that  have been mounted on the local host.  Only users with root privi‐
       lege  can  mount	 remote	 filesystems;  see  mount_cifs(1M)  and	 cifs‐

       If  no username is given (see the option), assumes that the remote CIFS
       account name is identical to user's HP-UX login	name,  otherwise,  the
       specified  username  is	used.  If no password is given on the command-
       line (see and cifslogin prompts the user to enter one.

       The first form of given above is used  with  user-level	security;  the
       second  with share-level.  The obsolescent form is maintained for back‐
       wards-compatability with earlier releases of the CIFS Client.

       The user's login credentials for server can be saved  in	 an  encrypted
       user-database  (see the option and cifsdb(1M)), such that future logins
       occur transparently; the user will be logged  in	 automatically,	 using
       the  stored  credentials,  when	simply	attempting to access a mounted
       share on server, without explicitly invoking

       via or automatically, via the user database.

       recognizes the following options:

	      Login to	     server  as username.  If this option is not used,
			     but is specified, the CIFS Client	transmits  the
			     user's  HP-UX  login  name	 as the remote account

	      Use this	     password to login to server.  If this option  and
			     are  not used, but is specified, prompts the user
			     for password.  The option should be used only  if
			     necessary,	 because  command-line	parameters may
			     appear in the output of ps(1).  This option  pro‐
			     vides  the	 possibility of passing a dynamically-
			     generated password to the server.

	      This option specifies to
			     server that the user should be  authenticated  in
			     the  given	 CIFS domain.  This argument overrides
			     any domain setting in the configuration file.

	      Do not prompt for
			     password.	This option may be used	 if  the  user
			     does  not	have  a	 password,  or to force "auto-
			     login" for this request (see the  Administrator's
			     Guide  for	 detailed  information	on  auto-login
			     methods available with the CIFS Client).

	      Read	     password from stdin (implies This option  may  be
			     useful  when using from a shell script or another
			     program. The option is insecure for this purpose,
			     because ps(1) can show command-line parameters of
			     running processes.

	      Transmit	     password unencrypted.  This is  a	security  risk
			     and  should  be  used only if the server does not
			     allow password encryption.

	      If the login succeeds, store the	server	name  and  the	user's
			     credentials  in  the user database, such that the
			     user's future logins to server can be established
			     automatically  (without  invoking	when  the user
			     attempts to access the local directory at which a
			     share on the server has been mounted.

			     The  CIFS Client does not store unencrypted pass‐
			     words in the user database; this option cannot be
			     used  for	servers	 that  do not support password
