       smbtree - A text based smb network browser


       smbtree [-b] [-D] [-S]


       This tool is part of the samba(7) suite.

       smbtree  is  a  smb  browser program in text mode. It is similar to the
       "Network Neighborhood" found on Windows computers.  It  prints  a  tree
       with all the known domains, the servers in those domains and the shares
       on the servers.


          Query network nodes by sending requests  as  broadcasts  instead  of
          querying the local master browser.

          Only  print  a  list of all the domains known on broadcast or by the
          master browser

          Only print a list of all  the  domains  and  servers  responding  on
          broadcast or known by the master browser.

          Prints the program version number.

       -s <configuration file>
          The  file  specified  contains the configuration details required by
          the server. The information in this  file  includes  server-specific
          information   such  as  what  printcap  file  to  use,  as  well  as
          descriptions of all the services that the server is to provide.  See
          smb.conf  for  more information. The default configuration file name
          is determined at compile time.

          level is an integer  from  0  to  10.  The  default  value  if  this
          parameter is not specified is zero.

          The  higher  this  value,  the more detail will be logged to the log
          files about the activities of the server. At level 0, only  critical
          errors  and serious warnings will be logged. Level 1 is a reasonable
          level for day-to-day running  -  it  generates  a  small  amount  of
          information about operations carried out.

          Levels  above  1 will generate considerable amounts of log data, and
          should only be used when investigating a problem. Levels above 3 are
          designed for use only by developers and generate HUGE amounts of log
          data, most of which is extremely cryptic.

          Note that specifying this parameter here will override the

          parameter in the smb.conf file.

          Base directory name for log/debug files. The  extension  ".progname"
          will  be  appended  (e.g.  log.smbclient, log.smbd, etc...). The log
          file is never removed by the client.

          If specified, this parameter suppresses the normal  password  prompt
          from the client to the user. This is useful when accessing a service
          that does not require a password.

          Unless a password is specified on the command line or this parameter
          is specified, the client will request a password.

          If  a  password  is specified on the command line and this option is
          also defined the password on  the  command  line  will  be  silently
          ingnored and no password will be used.

          Try  to  authenticate  with  kerberos.  Only  useful  in  an  Active
          Directory environment.

          This option allows you to specify a file  from  which  to  read  the
          username and password used in the connection. The format of the file

          username = <value>
          password = <value>
          domain   = <value>

          Make certain that the permissions on the file restrict  access  from
          unwanted users.

          Sets the SMB username or username and password.

          If %password is not specified, the user will be prompted. The client
          will first check the USER environment  variable,  then  the  LOGNAME
          variable  and  if  either exists, the string is uppercased. If these
          environmental variables are not found, the username GUEST is used.

          A third option is to use  a  credentials  file  which  contains  the
          plaintext  of  the  username  and  password.  This  option is mainly
          provided for scripts where the admin  does  not  wish  to  pass  the
          credentials  on  the  command  line or via environment variables. If
          this method is used, make certain that the permissions on  the  file
          restrict access from unwanted users. See the -A for more details.

          Be  cautious  about  including  passwords  in scripts. Also, on many
          systems the command line of a running process may be seen via the ps
          command.  To be safe always allow rpcclient to prompt for a password
          and type it in directly.

          Print a summary of command line options.


       This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.


       The original Samba software  and  related  utilities  were  created  by
       Andrew  Tridgell.  Samba  is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.

       The smbtree man page was written by Jelmer Vernooij.
