being honest, i am only currently interested in how microsoft has done
things.  later, when i want to do a proper job of things, i will come back
to osf dce/rpc, as i want to take the smb/dce/rpc code _out_ of samba,
creating separate daemons (smbd to be used as a communication mechanism
between smb/dce/rpc and these daemons).

for future reference, could you possibly inform [us, cifs and
samba-technical] where to obtain source for dce/rpc client/server-stub?  i
am sure you have told me before: i have just lost 8 months of email
archives due to a power spike.

yep, can indeed.

ah?  _excellent_ - very useful info.
