masktest - Find differences in wildcard matching between Samba's implementation and that
of a remote server.

[-s seed] [-a] [-E] [-M max protocol] [-f filechars] [-m maskchars] [-v]


masktest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour between Samba's own
implementation and that of a remote server. It will run generate random filenames/masks
and check if these match the same files they do on the remote file as they do on the local
server. It will display any differences it finds.

This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour between Samba and
Windows servers.


-U user%pass
Specify the user and password to use when logging on on the shares. This parameter can
be specified twice (once for the first server, once for the second).

-s seed
Seed the random number generator with the specified value.

-n numops
Set the number of operations to perform.

Print the operations that are performed.

-M max_protocol
Maximum protocol to use.

Specify characters that can be used when generating file names. Default:

Abort when difference in behaviour is found.

-m maskchars
Specify characters used for wildcards.

Be verbose


This man page is correct for version 4.0 of the Samba suite.
