Questions tagged [smbfs]

SMBFS denotes the combination of two abbreviations "SMB" and "FS" which stand for "Server Message Block" and "File System" respectively. It is mainly notable for providing support for mounting resources using SMB protocol in Linux variants. Currently, focus has been shifted from SMBFS to CIFS (Common Internet File System) as its next generation alternative.
