[Samba] Compile Samba for Windows Use - SMBClient.exe mainly

The user for the site, and conversely php, is running as a application pool in IIS specifically for the site and as such only exists on that box.  The nice thing about using the samba client, if I can get it to work, is you can pass through the user credentials of the logged-in user. So security-wise it's a lot easier to maintain as users would have access to the same things they already do on the remote file server.  If they didn't have access before then they still wont.

does Pydio not accept UNC paths in place of a local path?  this has worked for me in other php things, as long as IIS is running under an account with network share permissions.

That's what I'm hoping for since I've been unable to compile on Windows 7 x64.  I am getting the same errors as Jeff, just a general compiler summary error with no real indication of what caused the issue.  I may also try compiling the older version using the makefile and patch Ross did at https://smithii.com/samba on XP first to make sure I can at least recreate the wheel and then move up to higher versions from there.  If I can't reproduce something someone already did then there is little chance I can compile a new one anyway and I'll have to look further into either tricking the Pydio software to remotely access a share or writing my own plugin to do it for me, both things I don't know if I'm capable of but I'm willing to try.

I'm going to start up a 32-bit XP machine virtual machine and install only cygwin and what I believe are the dependencies and see how far I can get.   I'm currently out of town so I'll try it either later in the week or next week.

As Windows provides binary compatibility you might just be able to get a 32-bit WindowsXP binary to run on the Windows server you're targetting.
