Samba for eComStation (OS/2)

Samba is a free implementation of the CIFS/SMB protocol for Unix, which allows LAN-Server style file and printer sharing among machines running Windows, Mac OS, Unix or eComStation (OS/2). The goal of this project is to port the Samba server and create Samba clients for eCS (OS/2) in order to replace the functionality of the outdated IBM-LAN-Requester/Peer/Server? components.

The eComStation (OS/2) server port is very fast and stable, and although still incomplete, very usable for daily work. It can be used to perform the following tasks:

  • share files among eCS (OS/2), Windows, Mac OS and Unix machines, including extended attribute support.
  • share printers among eCS (OS/2), Windows, Mac OS and Unix machines.

Note for the knitpickers: This is no fake, but a hybrid Samba 3.0.36/37 running in order to work around an issue found in recent 3.0.37 nmbd.exe builds, which is under investigation.
