I have a specific question about the SMB 2 (or CIFS 2 version protocol).

SMB2 was introduced with Microsoft Vista and is a redesign of the older SMB
protocol. (http://wiki.ethereal.com/SMB2)

Is current samba 3.0.xx release (or samba 4 release) support this protocol
when vista client tries to establish session with the samba server.

What are the features or advantages of getting this version of the protocol
negotiated with the client when compared to previous version of this

thanks in advance for any information regarding this.
