if you're concerned about >64k, create a DCE/RPC pipe.  send me an IDL
file, i'll create parsing code for it, and add it to samba.

security gets "automatically" added by the underlying DCE/RPC over SMB
mechanism so you don't even have to worry about it.

your first impl. should, however, be an SMB \PIPE\LANMAN IPC$ RAP call, in
smbd/lanman.c  OH, sorry, i mean smbd/ipc.c.

actually, i'd prefer it if your first impl. was the DCE/RPC one, because
then the IPC$ can can be implemented in _terms_ of the DCE/RPC one, as the
DCE/RPC one will just be a function call.

actually, two.  one to get unix security info, one to set it.

should be simple to do.

i'll help you write, or i will write,  DCE/RPC client and server code on
samba, if you create the IDL file and worry about the Win95 and NT side.
