Manage your SMB/CIFS Network Shares with CifsManager

Manage your SMB/CIFS Network Shares with CifsManager

Server Message Block (SMB) or Common Internet File System (CIFS) are normally used to provide shared access to files on a network, mostly involving computers running MS Windows.

XDA forum member f3d0r has coded a small app that allows you to manage your SMB/CIFS network shares on your Android device.

It allows you to conveniently mount/unmount your network accessible file resources and access the files transparently via your favourite Android app (playing music / videos, accessing documents etc.)  Settings are stored on your SD card with permissions to write also to your SD card.

Requires root access, and a kernel with CIFS support.

For more information and to download the app, check out the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
