[Samba] Registering external program for a specific named pipe

I found that they can be declared  as external in config file. I had
rpc_server:abcdef = external

Doesn't seem to do anything, didn't found the Unix domain file in
/var/run/samba. Any idea what I am missing ?

Best regards,

Objet : Registering external program for a specific named pipe

Hi everyone,

I wish to implement a service on top of an smb named pipe. I go over the
samba code and I have seen how to implement the service directly into samba
code like the rpc echo server.

I wish to do it differently. Is there a way for an external software to
register into samba such as all smb messages on \PIPE\ABCDEF (as an
example) get transmit directly to it ?

If yes, Is there any documentation out that I missed ?

Best regards,

Jean-Daniel FISCHER
