Sharity 3.7

A Unix client for the Windows network file system.
Sharity is a client for the SMB protocol (Server Message Block), also known as CIFS protocol (Common Internet File System). CIFS is the file-sharing protocol used by Windows, OS/2, Samba and many others.

Sharity mounts these servers in your file system. Mounting means that you can open files directly from the server with any application you like, as if they were on a local disk.

Other clients (such as smbclient from the Samba suite) provide only an ftp-like interface where you can copy files to and from the share but cannot open them directly.

Main features:

  • Access files on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, 2003, XP, Samba, AppleShare IP, FacetWin and other CIFS servers.
  • Provides network browsing facility similar to Windows' "Network Neighborhood".
  • Runs on almost any Unix operating system (including Mac OS X). Click here for a complete list
  • Easy Installation.
  • Faster than NFS servers for Windows.
  • Shares are mounted in the file system: You can open files directly from the server.
  • Seamless integration with your operating system Environment: The Graphical User Interface asks for passwords and is used to configure Sharity.
  • Source-code available for download. Download Source Code Now
  • Encrypted password transmission.
  • Can be compiled with OpenSSL for secure encrypted data transfer.
