Here’s stuff that I think I should note down about networking be it ethernet, wifi, samba or wireshark. Basically everything that took me more than 5min to search for and took some try and error.
Samba / SMB / CIFS
Connect to share
Mount a certain share. Remember that smbclient will not use higher than NT1
if you don’t override with the
-m switch. Plus Thunar and Dolphin seem to
ignore higher Samba protocol level and just silently won’t connect to the share.
Bear in mind though that smbclient actually allows use encryption for the
traffic whereas mount.cifs does not.
sudo mount -t cifs -o users,rw,uid=your-uid,username=uname,vers=3.0,sec=ntlmsspi,soft //server/share mount-dir
Status of Samba Server
You can use
smbstatus to see what client is connected with what settings.
rsync / ssh
rsync over ssh on different port
rsync -e "ssh -p1234" local-folder firstname.lastname@example.org:/path/to/target
