mkautosmb autodiscovers the local SMB (Windows) network using smbclient, sets up an autofs configuration, and can optionally create a "virtual" directory hierarchy with symlinks. This makes the network completely transparent for all applications. Most of the smbfs/cifs mount options are supported.
Release Notes: Mount options to CIFS have been fixed. Invocation of modprobe was added during the check for file system support. Discovery mode has been overhauled. It now uses nmblookup broadcast instead of smbtree.
Release Notes: The detection of supported filesystems was fixed.
Release Notes: Support for CIFS was added. Detection of autofs 4 was fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem with autofs 4.1.x, specifically trailing spaces in the mount file.
Release Notes: This release adds auto-discovery mode (using smbtree) and has some bugfixes.
