This book gathers together and presents-in a readable, accessible form- the arcane knowledge of the Samba Team in understanding the CIFS protocol. The content is based on years of experience asking and answering questions on the Samba Technical and jCIFS Developer's mailing lists, as well as countless hours spent pouring over obscure documentation, packet traces, and source code. The approach is layered with basic concepts first introduced and then discussed before drilling down into the actual workings and internals. The goal is to help the reader, no matter what platform they are working in, develop an understanding of the protocols, and to act as a guide to the more detailed specifications and technical references that are available.The large installed base of Windows systems has granted de facto standard status to the CIFS (Microsoft's filesharing system) protocol suite. It lets programs make requests for files and services on remote computers on the Internet. Unfortunately, implementation documentation and detailed protocol specs are scarce, incomplete, or inconsistent.This is a problem both for network administrators and third-party CIFS implementors and so the need for this book is clear. Samba is an Open Source CIFS server that ships with most distributions of Linux and several commercial UNIX flavors. JCIFS is an SMB/CIFS implementation in Java. From the Back Cover "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 networksOffers clear, in-depth introductions to Server Message Block (SMB), NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NBT), browser services, and authenticationDrills down into the internals of CIFS, exposing its behavior on the wire and at the desktop—and its strange quirksPresents illustrative code examples throughoutReflects years of work reviewing obscure documentation, packet traces, and sourcecodeIncludes 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.
