This is a repost of a question in another subforum
. Its now a week old and has had no responses yet.
My apologies if this isn't allowed. I checked the rules and could not find anything about it.
By the way, when searching for the rules I encountered a topic about an Example of Serious Rule Violation
by someone named 'CameljockeyBoy', but do not really see what he did wrong to warrant that one-year ban. As an example
it does not really do its work ...

I've recently aquired a LS-320GL as a hand-me-down -- the origional owner (a friend of mine) thought it was broken, but it was nothing TFTP and a new firmware could not fix. He did not need it back though, so I'm now stuck with it
And as I'm a bit of a hobby-programmer (Strictly Microsoft DOS/Windows I'm afraid) I thought this would be a good moment to see how SMB/Samba works. I've googled for and found multiple documents on the subject, and thought to start with building a minimal client using the most basic protocol of them all: PC NETWORK PROGRAM 1.0.
Alas, although I can successfully negotiate that protocol, a subsequent tree-connect (to "\\LS-GLxxx\share") is met with the (quite uninformative and not understood by me) "access denied" status (ERRDOS, 0x0005).
Also, I get a Flags2 contents of 0x4001. And that is odd, as those flags are, as far as I can tell, only meaningfull in the NT LM 0.12 and above dialects.
So, there I am: up a creek without a paddle. :-\
The question is : Am I forgetting something/doing something wrong, and if so : what ? Does the NAS expect some other (not specified in the PC NETWORK PROGRAM 1.0 (corep) document) commands ?
If I'm not, where can I find the specs to the behaviour of the SAMBA version thats used by the NAS-es "Linux-188.8.131.52-arm1" firmware ?
If someone knows where I can find a Windows-compatible SMB/Samba *client* (stand-alone!) for testing purposes I would also like to know. Google returned up zilch in this respect (odd ...).
"Linux-184.108.40.206-arm1" ? What flavour is it ?
