cifsd – CIFS/SMB network daemon|
ip/cifsd [ –t ] [ –d ] [ –f debuglog ] [ –w name ] [ –o option ] ...
[ conndir ]|
Cifsd exports filesystems to CIFS or SMB clients like Microsoft
?? Windows. |
It is normally started by the network listen process via the /rc/bin/service/tcp445 service script (see listen(8)), which passes conndir and filedescriptors 0 and 1 to the incoming connection.
Users are authenticated by their Inferno/pop secret held by the auth server. When successful, cifsd changes its user id and namespace to the authenticated user. Informative log messages are appended to /sys/log/cifsd if it exists.
By default the share local is offered, which represents the root of the namespace described by /lib/namespace. If a different name is explicitly requested by the client then /bin/9fs (see srv(4)) is invoked to attach that filesystem, which is then exported instead.
The flags are:
Cifsd first appeared in 9front (May, 2011).|
