[freetds] Re: FreeTDS Samba (fwd)

Figured I'd forward this over here, in case anyone had any interest/experience
in the matter.

FreeTDS is an open-source implementation of the TDS protocol, used for
communication with SQL servers from Sybase and Microsoft.  It is released
under the LGPL license.  Currently, FreeTDS talks to SQL servers on a separate
TCP port, but I think the 'integrated security' discussed below lets the
client connect over MS RPC.  Perhaps someone here knows better than I.

I imagine he may be referring to Richard's libsmbclient when he talks about
better separation of libraries.  IIUC, libsmbclient is primarily intended for
use as a filesystem layer -- does it offer anything for application developers
who need to write other SMB payloads?

I had considered it actually, but I'm not sure I understand what happens
under integrated security, enough to implement.  Also, my understanding is
that Samba 2.2 has a better seperation of their stuff that we may be able
to use some of their libraries to achieve this.

The biggest problem is I don't have a PDC/MSSQL/remote client setup that I
can do some "debugging" with.
