i would hope so: i would love to see a program exist (not provided by
microsoft) that proxies between these two disparate protocols.
administrators can use secure http to connect to a web front-end, type in
a domain admin username/password on a remote domain?  _great_ fun!

regardless, the functionality already exists / is being developed in
smbclient, as it is needed for test purposes against both NT and Samba
servers.  i am deliberately libratising the calls, in case they are needed
