Hi all !
I'm currently developping a program that takes the smbtree output, parse it,
retrieve all connected workstations, then call nmblookup for each
workstation, resolve the IP, create a BIND zone file with this.
At this point, the programs works; I use system( " ") calls and unsafe
temporairy files. I just wanted to get it up quickly
Now; to secure this programs; I tought about 2 things
-> secure the program using pipes
However; I would have to make an update at each samba release since
there's no way to guarante that the smbtree and nmblookup arguments and
output will be the exact same file format as the current one
-> Link my code to samba.
I would take the smbtree code; just rename the main function
smbtreemain and do the same for nmblookup and use internal variables to
handle it. However, I'm not shure this code would even build in future
release because of linkage to librairies and so...
Which way do you recommand ?
Any other suggestions ?
Thanks a lot !
