wishful thinking.

AppleShare is for Apple Filesharing Protocol - either over AppleTalk or
TCP/IP. It knows nothing about SMB protocols.

The methodology your are describing is known as afpovertcp and it
connects to port 548 and doesn't authenticate via any Microsoft

I believe that there was a product called "DAVE" that allowed Macintosh
OS/9 to authenticate/use Microsoft networking protocols/services.
