     nsmb.conf - configuration file for SMB requests

     The nsmb.conf file contains information about the computers, users, and
     shares or mount points for the SMB network protocol.

     The configuration hierarchy is made up of several sections, each section
     containing a few or several lines of parameters and their assigned
     values.  Each of these sections must begin with a section name enclosed
     within square brackets, similar to:


     The end of each section is marked by either the start of a new section,
     or by the abrupt ending of the file, commonly referred to as the EOF.
     Each section may contain zero or more parameters such as:


     where key represents a parameter name, and value would be the parameter's
     assigned value.

     The SMB library uses the following information for section names:

     A)      [default]
     B)      [SERVER]
     C)      [SERVER:USER]
     D)      [SERVER:USER:SHARE]

     Possible keywords may include:

     Keyword            Section        Comment
                        A B C D
     addr               - + - -        IP address of SMB server
     charsets           - + + +        local:remote charset pair
     nbns               + + - -        address of NetBIOS name server (WINS)
     nbscope            + + - -        NetBIOS scope
     nbtimeout          + + - -        timeout for NetBIOS name servers
     password           - - + +        plain text or simple encrypted password
                                       used to access the given share
     retry_count        + + - -        number of retries before connection is
                                       marked as broken
     timeout            + + - -        SMB request timeout
     workgroup          + + + +        workgroup name

     /etc/nsmb.conf      The default remote mount-point configuration file.

     ~/nsmb.conf         The user specific remote mount-point configuration

     What follows is a sample configuration file which may, or may not match
     your environment:

           # Configuration file for
           # The 'FSERVER' is an NT server.
           # User specific data for FSERVER

     All lines which begin with the `#' character are comments and will not be
     parsed.  The ``default'' section describes the default workgroup or
     domain, in this case ``SALES''.  The next section depicted here as
     ``FSERVER'', defines a server section and then assigns it a charset which
     is only required when Cyrillic characters are not used.  The hostname
     value, ``'', is also assigned in this section.
     ``FSERVER:USER'', defines the user settings and is useful for saving the
     password used during a specific connection.  The password may be
     plaintext or obfuscated using simple encryption.  The simple encrypted
     password starts with the `$$1' symbols.  Warning: the encryption function
     is very weak and intended only to hide clear text passwords.  If the use
     of simple encryption is desired, the following command may be used on a

           smbutil crypt

     smbutil(1), mount_smbfs(8)
