	You'd be better off sending this request to the
Microsoft hosted CIFS list, which is for developers creating
their own SMB servers/clients.

This list is for Samba technical development issues, and whilst
I wish you well with your server, discussions of it's development
don't really belong on a Samba specific list :-).

a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
