Mac OS Smbutil

With newer OS X, there's no smbclient command, but it's replaced with smbutil.
I can't solve the starting machine archetype since connecting to smb can't be done (authorization problem). Does anyone have any idea how to connect anonymously to the smb server?

  • I am not an OSX/MacOS user so I don't know the definite answer here.

    However, some things to consider:

    • Can you install SMBclient? Is it something you can add to the OS with brew for example?
    • If not, then you might be better using a virtual image for CTFs/Pentesting/etc as having granular control over your OS is pretty helpful.
    • With smbutil is there a switch like -a or -A that allows anonymous connections? I don't know it well enough to be sure but I think there is still a way to do anonymous authorisation.

    Note: I am not going to be available much in September.

    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.

  • Sorry that I wasn't very clear at first. As a reply,

    AFAIK, I believe it's not possible to install SMBclient.

    I might have to do that.

    with smbutil, there's -a flag that allows anonymous connection. However, I can't really connect to the server anonymously (either smbutil bug or my environmental issues)

  • smbutil view -g //10.10.10.27/
    mkdir ~/mnt
    mount_smbfs -N //[email protected]/backups ~/mnt

  • Hi Everyone, when I enter

    smbutil view -g //10.10.10.27/
    I'm asked to enter a password and when I press enter I get "Authentication error" does anyone know what i'm missing here
