sharesniffer is a network analysis tool for finding open and closed file shares on your local network. It includes auto-network discovery and auto-mounting of any open cifs and nfs shares.

How to use
Example to find all hosts in network and auto-mount at /mnt:

python -l 4 --hosts -a -m /mnt


  • Python 2.7 or 3.5
  • Linux or macOS
  • Nmap in PATH
  • Nmap scripts (.nse) in PATH (on Linux/macOS they are usually in /usr/local/share/nmap/), if you don't have the ones required are also in the rootdir of sharesniffer.
  • python-nmap (pip install python-nmap)
  • netifaces (pip install netifaces)


$ git clone
$ cd sharesniffer

  -l SPEEDLEVEL, --speedlevel SPEEDLEVEL
                        Scan speed aggressiveness level from 3-5, lower for
                        more accuracy (default: 4)
  -n, --nfs             Scan network for nfs shares
  --nfsmntopt NFSMNTOPT
                        nfs mount options (default: ro,nosuid,nodev,noexec,udp
  -s, --smb             Scan network for smb shares
  --smbmntopt SMBMNTOPT
                        smb mount options (default: ro,nosuid,nodev,noexec,udp
  --smbtype SMBTYPE     Can be smbfs (default) or cifs
  --smbuser SMBUSER     smb username (default: guest)
  --smbpass SMBPASS     smb password (default: none)
  -a, --automount       Auto-mount any open nfs/smb shares
  -m MOUNTPOINT, --mountpoint MOUNTPOINT
                        Mountpoint to mount shares (default: ./)

  -v, --verbose         Increase output verbosity
  --debug               Debug message output
  -q, --quiet           Run quiet and just print out any possible mount points
                        for crawling
  -V, --version         Prints version and exits
