Sharity 3 Introduction
Sharity is a network file system client. "Client" means that it is used to access file resources (shares) in the network, it does NOT provide network access to your local resources. Sharity implements the SMB (Server Message Block) protocol which is (for instance) used by all versions of Windows to share files over the network. This protocol is also known under the name CIFS (Common Internet File System). Sharity can mount SMB shares in the Unix file system transparently.
