Hi Folks,

I am going away again, Melbourne and Perth this time. During that time I
want to get a few things done on smbclient, so I will be looking at the
changes Andrew has made. I have some bug reports to get out of the way plus
the long outstanding code to restore times on directories correctly.

One of the bug reports I have seen suggests that both NT4sp3 and Win95
object to changing the time on a file (my own experience is that Win95
sends back an error response to the SMB to set the attributes, but does
indeed change the time :-).

Does anyone have any experience with changing the time on files via SMB
under Win95 or NT?  I am beginning to suspect that I may be seeing a return
code that we are not expecting or something else ... Can anyone comment?
