CIFS client update

Blog post by obaro_ogbo on Sat, 2009-07-04 16:03

The journey so far. I have implemented basic file system interface functionality including mount and unmount, and can load it directly as a kernel addon and via userlandfs. At present the client expects just the server ip address and the share name in the format :. I have begun implementing protocol negotiation, and hope to complete the setup of a session using LANMAN in the next few days. I had hoped to have begun implementing file actions by now but unfortunately I’m quite a way from that.

Greetings one and all! I am Obaro Ogbo, one of the students selected for GSoC 2009. I also use the name nastee on irc and on Haiku Bug Tracker. I am a 3rd year student of Computer Science and Technology at Bells University of Technology Ota, Nigeria, and it appears I’m the first ever Nigerian GSoC student :-). I began programming with Java, then learnt C before studying C++. I’ve done little PHP and Perl coding, however I’m learning Lisp presently.
