I'm building a small script that scans my local network and lists the
files located on it.
I'm using libsmbclient to get the list of shares on each computer.
However, when I scan windows XP computers, I can only open 10 shares on
them, then I get some 'access denied' errors. I google that problem and
found out that this limit is normal, ie you can only open 10 connections
to a windows xp computer.
Since I only open one share at a time, why am I facing that limit?
I'm using these three functions:
Is there a way for samba not to open a new connection for each share?
Or is there a way to close a connection manually?
Thanks in advance.
