mkautosmb makes the local SMB network browsable from Linux.

Here are some key features of "mkautosmb":

· Autodetects hosts and shares on local (windows) network.
· Support for CIFS.
· Auto-discovery mode. No PDC required (but can be used also).
· Handles hosts with multiple IPs; the one on the current sub net will be used.
· Sets up autofs configuration for automatically mounting shares.
· Creates virtual hierarchy, e.g. /net using symbolic links, so shares are visible when browsing.
· Possible to specify several diffrent mounting options, including set login, file/dir mask uid and gid.
· Excluding, by pattern, of whole hosts or specific shares.
· Multi-threaded for really speedy updates.

What's New in This Release:

· Fixes to mount options for cifs. Note: in some kernels (at least in 2.4.22), cifs does not recognize mount option 'credentials' although it should.
· Added invocation of modprobe during check for file system support.
· If no file systems are found to be supported, mkautosmb will abort.
· Added patch provided by Martin �erstr�. Fixes/Reimplements discovery mode. Now using nmblookup broadcast instead of smbtree.
