you should probably be looking at Samba 3.0.x rather than 2.2.x
for study. Or use Samba 4 for research purposes.

| Hello all,
| I am a final year computer engineering student.
| As part of my BE project I am working around with Samba server
| I wish to understand following implementation issues:
| 1. When and in what condition does a Samba server fork?
child smbd processes are forked per tcp session. See
| 2. What is the significance of the connection_structure?
It represents a connection to a file or lanman printer service.
| 3. Why is a doubly linked list of instances of
| the connection_structure are maintained?
a single session may have issued multiple tcon requests
and there may have more than on active share connection.
| 4. While running in interactive mode,an error occurs
| 'registers not obtained,permission denied',What does
| this error signify?
I don't see this error anywhere.
| 5. Can anyone tell me the way in which to
| understand the execution flow of samba server?
You'll have to read the source for this one. That's
a little broad of a question for a short email response.
