It looks, like if reply to transact2 does not have any parameters (Parameter
bytes = 0), NT sets parameter offset to data offset (at least, if there is
any data). Here is example:
SMB: Parameter bytes = 0 (0x0)
SMB: Parameter offset = 56 (0x38)
SMB: Parameter Displacement = 0 (0x0)
SMB: Data bytes = 0 (0x0)
SMB: Data offset = 56 (0x38)
Visual check of several traces confirm it.
SAMBA currently sets prameter offset to 0 (zero). It may or may not have
cause problems. Netmon is greately confused at least, to the extent, that it
is no more possible to believe plain text printout.
I suspect at least one problem as well (one 16 bit program does not show
volume size. It did before).
It may apply to transact2 command as well. I simply don't know offhand any
command without parameters.
