Ok, what I have is a standalone Samba server without ADS or LDAP. Users
are managed in a smbpasswd file. In the other side I have a Linux box
running webmin. Both servers are in the same LAN. What I need is an App
to be included in webmin (that's why I need Perl) in the second box for
listing all users in the Samba server.
I saw that net command use a RPC request but I didn't find how to do the
That's all I have :(
