NSMB(4)                 NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                NSMB(4)

NAME
     nsmb -- kernel SMB protocol communicator

SYNOPSIS
     pseudo-device nsmb

DESCRIPTION
     This virtual device is used by SMBFS filesystem for actual communication
     with SMB servers.  It provides the physical transportation, encapsulating
     the networking part of SMBFS.  Only SMB over TCP/IP is supported at this
     moment, SMB over NetBIOS is not supported.

     For the SMBFS kernel support to work, it's necessary to have both this
     pseudo-device and file-system SMBFS configured into kernel.

SEE ALSO
     mount_smbfs(8)

HISTORY
     This driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4.  In NetBSD, this first
     appeared in NetBSD 2.0, together with rest of SMBFS support.
