I am using a sniffer to observe the SMB packets.

I find that windows client makes multiple TREE_CONNECTS to
the IPC$ share prior to an actual TREE_CONNECT to the mapped share
and also prior to opening a file.
Does anyone know what do these TREE_CONNECTS to the IPC$
share achieve ?

Furthermore, Samba returns a DIFFERENT Tid for each TREE_CONNECT
request to the IPC$ share. Is that required by the client ?
