Aha. Forget smbclient4. That is an easy one.
So the 4.x server AD domain does not support NetBIOS browsing. Is this
feature to be added in (near) future again?
Futher I'm working on a fuse fs. Earlier said Volkert that I should look to
the code in source3/client/client.c.
I want to, but I do not see how to create a pool of connections simular to
the way is done in libsmbclient.c/h.
There, every call will check/create the SMBCSRV struct, with a connection
to the server.
When using calls simular to calls found in source3/client/client.c (I want
to use these in my new fuse fs, enabling the async interface) the struct
cli_state is used.
I know this is the connection to the server. Is this connection established
automatically? For example in the cmd_stat, the most important calls are:
Do these calls create a connection if it is not there yet or do I have to
