Description Florian Effenberger 2003-11-25 07:51:01 UTC
I would like to see an option in the configuration files to fully remove product
and version information from the server's protocol.

It is part of my security concept to NOT show anything like that to outside users.

hiding the version provides no additional security.
The current behavior was decided upon by consent 
on the samba-technical mailing list.

However if you want to do this, see 
smbd/sesssetup.c:add_signature() and make sure to
set the 'server string' appropriately in smb.conf.
