There is no SmbRandomAccessFile. Someone submitted an implementation once
but it did not use any SMB_COM_SEEK calls so even though it appeared
to work I could not say with certainty that it was correct. It will be
necessary write a Win32 program and capture it's output to compare. It's
on the list (but it has been for a long time);

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
