     smbutil --	interface to the SMB requester

     smbutil [-hv] command [-options] [args]

     The smbutil command is used to control SMB	requester and issue various

     There are two types of options -- global and local	to the specified

     Global options are	as follows:

     -h	     Print a short help	message.

     -v	     Verbose output.

     The commands and local options are:

     crypt [password]
	     Encrypt clear text	password for use in the	~/.nsmbrc file.	 The
	     encrypted password	starts with the	`$$1' symbols.	Warning: the
	     encryption	function is very weak and intended only	to hide	clear
	     text password.  If	password is omitted from the command line,
	     smbutil will prompt for one.

     help command
	     Print usage information about command.

     lc	     List active connections and their parameters.

     login [-connection_options] //user@server[/share]
	     Login/attach to the specified server and/or share as user.	 This
	     command will create and authenticate connection to	an SMB server,
	     and will leave it active after exit.  Thus, it is possible	to lo-
	     gin only once and then use	other SMB commands without authentica-
	     tion procedure and	additional connections.	 For the description
	     of	-connection_options refer to the mount_smbfs(8)	manpage	(all
	     uppercase options are connection options).

     logout //user@server[/share]
	     Logout/detach from	the specified server and/or share as user.
	     This command will destroy a connection created by the login com-
	     mand.  A connection may not be closed immediately if it is	used
	     by	other programs.

     lookup [-w	host] name
	     Resolve the given name to an IP address.  The NetBIOS name	server
	     can be directly specified via the -w option.

     print [-connection_options] //user@server/share file
	     Send the given file to the	specified queue	on the remote server.
	     If	file is	-, then	standard input will be used.

     view [-connection_options]	//user@server
	     List resources available on the specified server for the user

     ~/.nsmbrc	Keeps description for each connection.	See
		./examples/dot.nsmbrc for details.
