fusesmb.conf - the configuration file for fusesmb


The file consists of sections and parameters. A section begins with the name of the sec‐ tion in square brackets and continues until the next section begins. Sections contain parameters of the form: name = value. The file is line-based - that is, each newline-terminated line represents either a com‐ ment, a section name or a parameter. Section and parameter names are not case sensitive. Only the first equals sign in a parameter is significant. Whitespace before or after the first equals sign is discarded. Leading, trailing and internal whitespace in section and parameter names is irrelevant. Leading and trailing whitespace in a parameter value is discarded. Internal whitespace within a parameter value is retained verbatim. Any line beginning with a semicolon (``;'') or a hash (``#'') character is ignored, as are lines containing only whitespace.


fusesmb.conf can contain the following sections: The [global] section Section for global parameters. The [ignore] section Section for specifying servers and/or workgroups that should not be listed. The [/SERVER] section Section for server-specific settings. The section name should start with a slash ``/'' and not end with a slash. The [/SERVER/SHARE] Section for share-specific settings. The section name should start with a slash followed by the server name followed by a slash ending on the share name. It should not end with a slash.


This chapter explains each possible option. The section names - specified between paren‐ theses after each option - shows the applicable sections for this option. For example: ( [global] ) specifies that this option is only possible for the section [global]. ignore ( [/SERVER] ) Ignore this server. Possible values are: true, false, 1 and 0. Example: ignore = true interval ( [global] ) Interval for scanning the network for shares. Value is a number that specifies the network scanning interval in minutes. If the value is smaller or equal to zero the network is not scanned. Example: interval = 20 password ( [global], [/SERVER], [/SERVER/SHARE] ) Password. Value is string containing the password. Example: password = secret servers ( [ignore] ) Servers to ignore. Value is each server to ignore separated by a comma. Example: servers = SERVER1, SERVER2, SERVER3 showhiddenshares ( [global], [/SERVER] ) Show hidden shares. Possible values are: true, false, 1 and 0. Example: showhiddenshares = false timeout ( [global] ) Connection timeout in seconds. A server after this timeout is considered offline. Values smaller than 2 seconds are ignored. Example: timeout = 10 username ( [global], [/SERVER], [/SERVER/SHARE] ) Username. Value is string containing the username. Example: username = johndoe workgroups ( [ignore] ) Workgroups to ignore. Value is each workgroup to ignore separated by a comma. Example: workgroups = WORKGROUP1, WORKGROUP2
