       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.

           together with -R.

       -f, --rcfile

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


           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.


           # 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/


       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).


       This man page is correct for version 3 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 smbget manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij.
