Hello, I have been using samba for many years and find it solid and reliable :-)
However we are experiencing problems between our HP unix servers running NFS
because of the way RPC is used as the underlying basis if NFS. I would like to
know if any plans are a foot to provide a smbfs implementation on other systems
then just Linux. If there are non I would be willing to take the source and help
in the development of this type of functionality. Your imput will be welcomed.
