Thanks Volker for your quick reply. Now I can read and create my own test
suite now.
I ran into another problem just now. Must I have smb2.ko to run smbclient4?
But I did not see any source code for smb2.ko in the samba package (I use
master branch). I know the server side does not need smb2.ko, but how can
the client need this one (as a file system driver for linux VFS)?

Thanks and wait for your reply
