NAME

       smbtree - A text based smb network browser


SYNOPSIS

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



DESCRIPTION

       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.



OPTIONS

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


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


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


       -V     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-spe-
              cific  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.


       -d|--debug=debuglevel
              debuglevel 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 crit-
              ical  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   pa-
              rameter in the smb.conf file.


       -l|--logfile=logdirectory
              Base  directory  name for log/debug files. The extension ".prog-
              name" will be appended (e.g. log.smbclient,  log.smbd,  etc...).
              The log file is never removed by the client.


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

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


       -k     Try to authenticate with kerberos. Only useful in an Active  Di-
              rectory environment.


       -A|--authentication-file=filename
              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 is



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


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


       -U|--user=username[%password]
              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.


       -h|--help
              Print a summary of command line options.
