Implementing CIFS: The Common Internet File System

Buy

"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.
