Re: [SLE] Advice Needed re Home LAN, etc.
Winduhs natively does administrative communication via their SMB protocol
(Server Message Block). This was 'borrowed' by them from an archaic DEC
messaging system.

When Winduhs started communicating all over the place with SMB, one bright
light remembered the old DEC protocol. He was able to fit this to *nix,
back-engineer/tweak it to SMB and dubbed it Samba.
Many of us thank you sir.
