Pyfilesystem2 over SMB using pysmb
Install directly from PyPI, using pip :
$ pip install fs.smbfs
fs.open_fs to open a filesystem with an SMB FS
import fs smb_fs = fs.open_fs('smb://username:password@SAMBAHOSTNAME:port/share')
The opener can use either an IPv4 address or a NetBIOS hostname, using the
NetBIOS name service to
find the other token. Otherwise, if NetBIOS is not available, a new SMB
connection can be established by using the IPv4 address and giving the
hostname with the
hostname URL parameter.
The following parameters can be passed as URL parameters:
import fs.smbfs smb_fs = fs.smbfs.SMBFS( host, username="guest", passwd="", timeout=15, port=139, name_port=137, direct_tcp=False, domain="" )
with each argument explained below:
host: either the host name (not the FQDN) of the SMB server, its IP address, or both in a tuple. If either the IP address or the host name is not given, NETBIOS is queried to get the missing data.
user: the username to connect with, defaults to
"guest"for anonymous connection.
passwd: an optional password to connect with, defaults to
""for anonymous connection.
timeout: the timeout, in seconds, for NetBIOS and TCP requests.
port: the port the SMB server is listening on.
name_port: the port the NetBIOS naming service is listening on.
direct_tcp: set to True if the server is accessible directly through TCP, leave as False for maximum compatibility.
domain: the network domain to connect with, i.e. the workgroup on Windows. Usually safe to leave as empty string, the default.
Once created, the
SMBFS filesystem behaves like any other filesystem
(see the Pyfilesystem2 documentation),
except if it was open in the root directory of the server, in which case the
root directory of the
SMBFS instance will be read-only (since SMB clients
cannot create new shares).
