FUSESMB.CONF(5) File Formats Manual FUSESMB.CONF(5)

NAME

fusesmb.conf - the configuration file for fusesmb
 

FILE FORMAT

The file consists of sections and parameters. A section begins with the name of the section 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 comment, 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.
 

SPECIAL SECTIONS

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.
