agreed, probably not.

ok, i'll say what i suspect is the case, without (like you) having win95
to check.

that this is one of the rare instances where win95 has dce/rpc client-side
code in it.  namely, that it may be possible to tell a win95 machine
"sorry, the request doesn't fit into an SMBtrans2 lanman packet" and it
then makes a dce/rpc request.

if we get the format of the response right in ipc.c, we can force win95
machines to make dce/rpc calls.

either NetMonitor or paul leach might be able to help clarify things,
