     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 val-
     ues.  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 or IPX 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 password used to access the given
     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.


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

	   # Configuration file for example.com
     ``FSERVER'', defines a server section and then assigns it a charset which
     is only required when Cyrillic characters are not used.  The hostname
     value, ``fserv.example.com'', is also assigned in this section.


     At the time of this writing, the IPX protocol remains unsupported.
     Future FreeBSD releases are expected to support this.
