DESCRIPTION

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

       smbget is a simple utility with wget-like semantics, that can download
       files from SMB servers. You can specify the files you would like to
       download on the command-line.

       The files should be in the smb-URL standard, e.g. use
       smb://host/share/file for the UNC path \\\\HOST\\SHARE\\file.

OPTIONS

       -a, --guest
           Work as user guest

       -r, --resume

       -R, --recursive
           Recursively download files

       -u, --username=STRING
           Username to use

       -p, --password=STRING
           Password to use

       -w, --workgroup=STRING
           Workgroup to use (optional)

       -n, --nonprompt

           not be used together with -R.

SMB URLS

       SMB URL´s should be specified in the following format:

           smb://[[[domain;]user[:password@]]server[/share[/path[/file]]]]

           smb:// means all the workgroups

           smb://name/ means, if name is a workgroup, all the servers in this workgroup, or if name is a server, all the shares on this server.

EXAMPLES

           # Recursively download ´src´ directory
           smbget -R smb://rhonwyn/jelmer/src
           # Download FreeBSD ISO and enable resuming
           smbget -r smb://rhonwyn/isos/FreeBSD5.1.iso
           # Recursively download all ISOs
           smbget -Rr smb://rhonwyn/isos
           # Backup my data on rhonwyn
           smbget -Rr smb://rhonwyn/

BUGS

       Permission denied is returned in some cases where the cause of the
       error is unknown (such as an illegally formatted smb:// url or trying
       to get a directory without -R turned on).
