lkcl vs. the samba team
I implemented basic (non-network) Named Pipes Support in
project. I am investigating how to add support for Named
over the network.
After reading Luke's article on the front page, i have to
agree with what he says. Despite his bitterness, he does
Samba is the NetBIOS gateway in Linux, yet the
that project have provided no way for any non-samba code
access NetBIOS functionallity. Windows multiplexes almost
network access through ports137 and139. They should at
accept a few basic hooks so that others can get the job
Samba teams' attitude is basically just port-hogging.
Perhaps the best solution is to write another port 139
daemon that sorts through requests and passes accesses to
to samba... to get under samba. Such a thing would cause a
performance hit, but maybe then the Samba team would get
my $0.02 worth.
