"SAMBA is a SMB/CIFS protocols file and print sharing server/client set originally made for UNIX world to cooperate with corresponding Windows and OS/2 servers or
clients. OS/2 has native implementation of SMB/CIFS server/client set - IBM LAN Manager and IBM Peer. These products haven't been updated for a long time and
have some compatibility problems with modern Windows SMB/CIFS implementations.
This package is the OS/2 port of SAMBA 3.0.9 client made as the plugin to NetDrive - a well known virtual file system for OS/2. OS/2 SAMBA client provides seamles access to SMB/CIFS file shares over your network using TCP/IP as the
underlying transport protocol.
The OS/2 SAMBA client consists of two modules:
ndpsmb.dll - the NetDrive plugin itself.
smbcd.exe - the SAMBA client daemon, which actually processes the requests from ndpsmb.dll."
