Description Dave Fenwick 2003-04-28 14:23:24 UTC
libsmbclient currently does not support any of the RPC functions.  It should
support these, enabling third party developers to easily integrate samba into
their existing tools and/or applications.

i think this is more up tpot's alley.
Comment 2 Tim Potter 2003-04-28 15:52:39 UTC
libsmbclient is a library that creates a POSIX like file descriptor interface
for accessing files on a SMB server.  The DECRPC client functions implemented by
Samba don't really fall in to this category.

A better idea is a librpcclient or lib{samr,lsa,spoolss,foo} library instead.

Richard Sharpe is the libsmbclient man as he wrote this code.  I suspect he will
agree with me though.
