SMB

Alexander Neundorf


The smb ioslave enables you to browse the shares of a Windows (or Samba) network.

To see the workgroups, enter smb:/.

smb://a_workgroup will list the hosts in this workgroup.

To see the shares of a host, enter smb://the_host or smb:/a_workgroup/the_host.

To access a share directly enter smb://the_host/the_share or smb:/a_workgroup/the_host/the_share

The smb ioslave requires that you have libsmbclient to use this ioslave.

You can set your default user name and password in the System Settings category Network and Connectivity in Sharing Windows Shares. This is especially useful if you are a member of a Windows NT domain. There you can also set your workgroup name, but in most cases this is not required. The kioslave will ask for your username and password if a default is not set.

This ioslave is tested and developed using mainly Samba 2.0.7, but other versions of Samba should work too.
