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
          Automatically resume aborted files

       -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

          Show dots as progress indication

       -P, --keep-permissions
          Set same permissions on local file as are set on remote file.

       -o, --outputfile

          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).

AUTHOR

       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.
