Hi Samba list!
I was very excited that SMB2 is finally working with samba 3.6.0 - great
I just know that SMB2 has a smaller command set compared to SMB1 and
many other rebuilds of the code makes it faster
As I am completely new to the file transfer protocol world, I want to
ask a few basic things:
- is Samba backward compatible ... xp can't use SMB2 as far as I read,
but the shares
are still working...
- how do I see that a windows client is using SMB2 and not SMB1
- Do I need XFS or ext4 for better performance in combination with
is this irrelevant
- Is SMB2 more "secure" than SMB1?
