     smbutil — Interface to SMB requester

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

     The smbutil command used to control SMB requester and issue various com‐

     There are two types of options - global and local to specified command.

     The global options are:

     -h	     Print short help message.

     -v	     Verbose output.

     The commands and local options are:

     crypt [password]
	     Slightly encrypt clear text password to use it in the ~/.nsmbrc
	     file. The encrypted password starts with '$$1' symbols.  Warning:
	     the encryption function is very weak and intented only to hide
	     clear text password.  If password is ommited from command line,
	     program will prompt for one.

     help command
	     Print usage information about command.

     lc	     List active connections and their parameters.

     login [-connection options] //[workgroup;][user[password]@]
	     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, one can login only
	     once and then use other SMB commands without authentication pro‐
	     cedure and additional connections.	 For the description of
	     [-connection options] see mount_smbfs(8) command (all uppercase
	     options are connection options).

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

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

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

     status server
	     Resolve given server (IP address or DNS name) to NetBIOS work‐
	     group and system name.

     view [-connection options] //[workgroup;][user[password]@] server
