Description:
For years, developers and administrators have struggled to understand CIFS, Microsoft's poorly documented standard for Internet file sharing. This book is a cross-platform guide to CIFS capabilities and behavior. Implementing CIFS not only delivers the knowledge of a Samba Team member dedicated to investigating the inner workings of CIFS, it also identifies and describes crucial specifications and supporting documents. This book is aimed at developers who want to add CIFS compatibility to their products. It will also be very helpful to network and system administrators who need to understand the things that CIFS does on the wire, in the server, and at the desktop. In addition, some of the Internet security community (both the light and the dark sides) is interested in the (mis)behavior of the CIFS suite. This is a technical book, and knowledge of programming and TCP/IP networking is assumed. The protocol descriptions, however, start with the basics and build up, so very little previous knowledge of CIFS is expected.
