"The book that Microsoft should have written, but didn't."
—Jeremy Allison, Samba Team
"Your detailed explanations are clear and backed-up with source code—and the numerous bits of humor make a dry subject very enjoyable to read."
—J.D. Lindemann, network engineer, Adaptec, Inc.
The first developer's guide to Microsoft®'s Internet/Intranet file sharing standard
For years, developers and administrators have struggled to understand CIFS, Microsoft's poorly documented standard for Internet file sharing. Finally, there is an authoritative, cross-platform guide to CIFS capabilities and behavior. Implementing CIFS not only delivers the priceless knowledge of a Samba Team member dedicated to investigating the inner workings of CIFS, it also identifies and describes crucial specifications and supporting documents.
- Provides essential information for designing and debugging large Windows® and/or Samba networks
- Offers clear, in-depth introductions to Server Message Block (SMB), NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NBT), browser services, and authentication
- Drills down into the internals of CIFS, exposing its behavior on the wire and at the desktop—and its strange quirks
- Presents illustrative code examples throughout
- Reflects years of work reviewing obscure documentation, packet traces, and sourcecode
- Includes the SNIA CIFS Technical Reference
Implementing CIFS will be indispensable to every developer who wants to provide CIFS compatibility—and every administrator or security specialist who needs an in-depth understanding of how it really works.
