  405. <title>Browsing</title>
  406. <para>&smb4k; automatically scans the network neighborhood for active workgroups and domains on start-up and presents them in the network browser. Opening a workgroup item shows the servers belonging to it. If you want to access the shares of one of the servers, you have to open the desired server.</para>
  407. <para>There are <link linkend="configuration_network_browselist">four methods</link> to retrieve the browse list: The default one is to scan the network neighborhood for all available master browsers. The second and third method directly query a master browser to get the browse list. The difference is that the former is a dynamic one, where the current master browser of your workgroup or domain is looked up and used, and the latter is a static one, where a fixed name or IP address is used. It is recommended that you choose the dynamic method. However, there might be circumstances that make it necessary to use a static name or IP address. The last method searches for all registered IP addresses within a given broadcast area. This might come in handy on poorly performing network neighborhoods.</para>

You only have to provide it once and the next time it is needed, &smb4k; will read it from the wallet.

  3650. <para>Under FreeBSD, the SMB protocol is implemented in a different way than with other *NIX operating systems, and, thus, mounting of remote shares works differently. The major difference is the way the logon information is passed during the mount process. While under Linux and other operating systems that use Samba's <ulink url="man:/smbmount"><citerefentry><refentrytitle>smbmount</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry></ulink>/<ulink url="man:/mount.cifs"><citerefentry><refentrytitle>mount.cifs</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry></ulink> programs you may specify the user name and password within the command options or by setting the <envar>USER</envar> and <envar>PASSWD</envar> environment variables, under FreeBSD, all logon information is stored in the credentials file <filename>~/.nsmbrc</filename>. If the logon information is not available there, you will not be able to mount a password protected share.</para>
  3651. <para>Fortunately, you do not have to prepare the <filename>~/.nsmbrc</filename> file manually to be able to use &smb4k;. It writes new logon information to the credentials file on the fly, so that it can be used immediately. If you use a WINS server, this one and a few more global things will be considered, too. However, the information &smb4k; writes to <filename>~/.nsmbrc</filename> is limited: Only the name of the remote share, its workgroup, the login name (user name) and the encrypted password are provided. If you experience problems due to missing entries, you need to add them manually.</para>
  3652. <para>If you do not trust &smb4k;, there are different ways how to fill the <filename>~/.nsmbrc</filename> file with the necessary data. The package maintainer of &smb4k; has written a README supplied with the binary FreeBSD package. Please refer to it in the case you prefer the manual or semi-automatic set-up.</para>
