samba has been doing DCE/RPC for at least 5 years over SMB. I did some
work 8 months ago to implement the WINS RPC pipe on port 135, and quickly
stop as the rpc functions I decoded were only for wins administration. Now
if there is really a rpc wins function to better implement the browsing, I
can revive my patch and commit it.
