smb2-handler is a filesystem for accessing files remotely using the SMB2/3
protocols. The protocol implementation is based on the currently latest git
version of libsmb2 (


- filesysbox.library 54.3 or newer.


Create a DOSDriver with the contents:
Handler   = L:smb2-handler
StackSize = 65536
Priority  = 5
GlobVec   = -1
Startup   = "<args>"

Where <args> should follow the template:


URL is the address of the samba share in the format:

USER and PASSWORD arguments if used override the username and password (if
any) specified in the URL argument.

VOLUME is the AmigaDOS volume name (if not specified it defaults to

READONLY sets the filesystem to read only mode.

NOPASSWORDREQ stops a password requester from being opened if no password is

To connect to the share myshare on server mypc using username "myuser" and
password "password123" use:

Startup = "smb://myuser:password123()mypc/myshare"

If the user name or password contains reserved characters (: ; ()) the 
USER and PASSWORD arguments can be used instead:

Startup = "smb://mypc/myshare USER=myuser PASSWORD=password123"

If you prefer not to store the password as plain text, you can also use its
NTLM hash with the following syntax:

Startup = "smb://mypc/myshare USER=myuser PASSWORD=ntlm:HASHABCDEF"

To connect to the same share using a guest account you can use:

Startup = "smb://mypc/myshare NOPASSWORDREQ"

To give the mounted share a custom name the VOLUME argument can be used:

Startup = "smb://mypc/myshare VOLUME=MyShare"

If you want the handler to be started immediately on mount, rather than on the
first access, then make sure that ACTIVATE=1 is set in either in the icon
tooltypes or in the DOSDriver file itself.

smb2-handler 53.7 (17.6.2023)

- Merged latest changes from libsmb2 git repository.

- AmigaOS 3 version now uses ReqTools for the password requester.

- Now uses an empty string instead of a NULL pointer when connecting to a
  share without a password.

- AROS version no longer gets SysBase by reading it from AbsExecBase.

- AROS version: Replaced fcntl() and close() calls with IoctlSocket() and
