A list of pointers here...
- Samba is a server suite. It provides Unix printers and directories as
shares to SMB/CIFS clients. These are usually Windows systems, but
Linux, FreeBSD, and MacOS X all can operate as clients.
- Mounting a remote SMB/CIFS share requires a "network filesystem client".
There are two such clients for Linux (smbfs and cifsvfs), two such for
Macintosh (Thursby's Dave and the native SMB client filesystem built
into MacOS X), and one for FreeBSD (Boris Popov's smbfs).
- I do not know of an SMB/CIFS client filesystem for Solaris. You would
have to talk to the folks at Sun about that.
- Your question really belongs on the Samba at Samba.org mailing list. The
Samba-Technical at samba.org list is used for in-depth discussions of
protocol details and suchlike.
