Yes, looking at my trace I see a session setup with a tree connect to the
IPC$ share. This in order to get the list of servers... the browse list.
That being the case, then I again say that getting the browse list is
little different from getting a share list from a server, and that the
semantics that I described in my last message make sense.
I had thought that the browse list was handled entirely by datagram
(UDP/138) but I see now that I was thinking only of the building of the
list, not access to the list.
