JSmbGet enables you to browse and download files from SMB networks other than your own local one. It consists of two parts, a server and a client. The server is installed on a machine on the remote network you want to be able to browse. It is useful when, for example, you have a LAN at home or at work with one computer acting as a gateway and the only visible computer for computers outside of the LAN is the gateway. With the JSmbGet server running on the gateway, you can access all of the SMB shares within the LAN from wherever you wish, using the JSmbGet client.

Release Notes: This is to be considered a preview release to get fast feedback on the Graphical User Interface introduced in this version. The GUI is not very functional yet, but basic operations are supported. Some new features have also been added to the text-based client, like tha ability to "attach" a download and to clear completed downloads.
Release Notes: This is the first sharp version of JSmbGet. There are no known bugs. No features have been added since the last beta, but a few bugs have been fixed. For example, a bug that caused the server to fail to change directory after an attempt to cd into an invalid directory has been fixed.
Release Notes: The "help" command now also displays information about the "info" command properly. "info" now prints the speed of the transfer. "info" can now print detailed info like the estimated time of arrival of a specific download and not just a summary of all current downloads. "ls" now accepts wildcards. More options in the configuration file such as auto-connect are now available.
Release Notes: The interface has been totally rewritten. JSmbGet now supports commands like CD, GET, and LS, making it much more usable. Two scripts for starting the server and the client more easily are now included. The messages written to console from the server are still not very useful, though this will be improved.
Release Notes: Ability to resume interrupted downloads, a fix for a big mistake that made the server use a hardcoded WINS, and allowing the user to set the WINS in a config file (which will make JSmbGet work much better).
