[RFE] libsmbclient: parse out and use the port information out of the URL
Last modified: 2013-04-16 17:25:10 UTC
Would be nice to have a way for connecting to a server running on non-standard port. One use case is for local non-privileged clients testing and the other is to be able to connect to userspace smb servers on restricted systems (like mobile devices).
For now, constructing a URL like 'smb://localhost:1445/public/' would lead to an error when trying to resolve the server address:
> SMBC_server: server_n=[localhost:1445] server=[localhost:1445]
> -> server_n=[localhost:1445] server=[localhost:1445]
> internal_resolve_name: looking up localhost:1445#20 (sitename (null))
> no entry for localhost:1445#20 found.
> resolve_hosts: Attempting host lookup for name localhost:1445<0x20>
> resolve_hosts: getaddrinfo failed for name localhost:1445 [Name or service not known]
Tested on samba-3.6.9
