Hi Matthieu & Volker,
        Thanks for your suggestion.

        I have compiled the Samba v3.6.12 via buildroot-2013.02, the size of the executable nmbd is 2.7MB after stripping, the size is much too large to embedded application because of Flash limitation.

        I only need nmbd ap to support NetBIOS protocol.

        So,  I have two question, pls kindly to give me some suggestions.

        Q1: If the Samba v3.61 can be reduced for compiling it, then get smaller nmbd executable ap(less than 1M Byte is better).
        Q2: If there is a small samba open source version, pls share relative web link to me.

        Thanks again!

Best regards

I second Volker, it might be much more easier to work on getting samba smaller (what ever it means) than trying to get samba-tng do anything helpful to you.
