could someone help me better understand the mechanism of negotiating of
the SMB protocol?
I watch closely samba list and recently there was a talk about the
'smb.conf' parameters like eg. "max protocol =" etc. with regards to
Windows 10 (and other windows clients of diff versions).
I read Jeff_Layton-Linux-CIFS-Client.pdf and
My question is:
1. does those parameters values (like 'max protocol') depend on the
'cifs.ko' version and it's supported SMB version? Meaning it's pointless
to set higher SMB value in smb.conf that the 'cifs.ko' support?
2. does samba server use the 'cifs.ko' to access linux (eg. ext4 of xfs
FS) to serve the windows client requests?
Sorry if those questions might seam stupid to someone, i'm just mere
admin trying to get better understanding of this mechanism.
