SMBUTIL(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		    SMBUTIL(1)

     smbutil — interface to the SMB requester

     smbutil [-hv] command [-options] [args]

     The smbutil command is used to control SMB requester and issue various

     There are two types of options — global and local to the specified

     Global options are as follows:

     -h	     Print a short help message.

     -v	     Verbose output.

     The commands and local options are:

     crypt [password]
	     Encrypt clear text password for use in the ~/.nsmbrc file.	 The
	     encrypted password starts with the ‘$$1’ symbols.	Warning: the
	     encryption function is very weak and intended only to hide clear
	     text password.  If password is omitted from the command line,
	     smbutil will prompt for one.

     help command
	     Print usage information about command.

     lc	     List active connections and their parameters.

     login [-connection_options] //user@server[/share]
	     Login/attach to the specified server and/or share as user.	 This
	     command will create and authenticate connection to an SMB server,
	     and will leave it active after exit.  Thus, it is possible to
	     login only once and then use other SMB commands without authenti‐
	     cation procedure and additional connections.  For the description
	     of -connection_options refer to the mount_smbfs(8) manpage (all
	     uppercase options are connection options).

     logout //user@server[/share]
	     Logout/detach from the specified server and/or share as user.
	     This command will destroy a connection created by the login com‐
	     mand.  A connection may not be closed immediately if it is used
	     by other programs.

     lookup [-w host] name
	     Resolve the given name to an IP address.  The NetBIOS name server
	     can be directly specified via the -w option.

     print [-connection_options] //user@server/share file
	     Send the given file to the specified queue on the remote server.
	     If file is -, then standard input will be used.

     view [-connection_options] //user@server
	     List resources available on the specified server for the user

     ~/.nsmbrc	Keeps description for each connection.	See
		./examples/dot.nsmbrc for details.
