     rump_smbfs -- mount a smbfs share with a userspace server

     file-system PUFFS
     pseudo-device putter

     rump_smbfs [options] share mountpoint

     NOTE! This manual page describes features specific to the rump(3) file
     server.  Please see mount_smbfs(8) for a full description of the
     available command line options.

     The rump_smbfs utility can be used to mount smbfs file systems.  It uses
     rump(3) and p2k(3) to facilitate running the file system as a server in
     userspace.  As opposed to mount_smbfs(8), rump_smbfs does not use file
     system code within the kernel and therefore does not require kernel
     support except puffs(4).  Apart from a minor speed penalty there is no
     downside with respect to in-kernel code.

     Even though the rump_smbfs file system client runs within a virtual rump
     kernel in userspace, it uses host network services (by means of ``rump
     sockin'').  This means that regardless of whether using rump_smbfs or
     mount_smbfs(8), the same network configurations will be used.  Currently,
     ``sockin'' supports IPv4.

     To use rump_smbfs via mount(8), the flags -o rump and -t smbfs should be
     given.  Similarly, rump_smbfs is used instead of mount_smbfs(8) if
     ``rump'' is added to the options field of fstab(5).

     The rump_smbfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.
