NAME

       smbmnt - helper utility for mounting SMB filesystems

SYNOPSIS

       smbmnt {mount-point} [-s <share>] [-r] [-u <uid>] [-g <gid>]
              [-f <mask>] [-d <mask>] [-o <options>] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       smbmnt is a helper application used by the smbmount program to  do  the
       actual  mounting  of  SMB shares.smbmnt can be installed setuid root if
       you want normal users to be able to mount their SMB shares.

       A setuid smbmnt will only allow mounts  on  directories  owned  by  the
       user, and that the user has write permission on.

       The smbmnt program is normally invoked by smbmount(8). It should not be
       invoked directly by users.

       smbmount searches the normal PATH for smbmnt. You must ensure that  the
       smbmnt version in your path matches the smbmount used.
