     mount_smbfs — mounts a shared resource from an SMB file server

     mount_smbfs [-I host] [-M cmode[/smode]] [-N]
		 [-O cowner[:cgroup]/sowner[:sgroup]] [-R retrycount]
		 [-T timeout] [-U user] [-W workgroup] [-d mode] [-f mode]
		 [-g gid] [-h] [-n opt] [-u uid] //[workgroup;][user[
		 password]@] server[/share] path

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

     The options are:

     -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.

     -M cmode[/smode]
	     Assign access rights to the newly created connection.

     -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 the mount_smbfs prompts for

     -O cowner[:cgroup]/sowner[:sgroup]
	     Assign owner/group attributes to the newly created connection.

     -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.

     -U user
	     Specifies the user name to be used in the authentication request.

     -W workgroup
	     Specifies the workgroup to be used in the authentication request.

     -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 dir 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.

     -n opt  Set opt option to affect file name lookups.  opt can be one of
	     the following:

	     Value    Meaning

	     long     No long names.  Server supports only "8.3" format.

     -u uid, -g gid
	     User id and group id assigned to files.  The default is owner and
	     group id from directory where the volume is mounted.

     //[workgroup;][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.	Workgroup 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.

     ~/.nsmbrc	    Keeps static parameters for connections and other informa‐
		    tion.  See ./examples/dot.nsmbrc for details.

     The following illustrate how to connect to an SMB server SAMBA as user
     GUEST to mount PUBLIC:

	   mount_smbfs -I //guest@samba/public /smb/public

     Please report bugs to Apple.
