CIFS to the UNIX Desktop (or the Death of NFS :-)"

Seminar

Most network admins only want to support one protocol to the desktop. They have to support CIFS, so why make them add NFS ?

This talk will explore how the Samba server program and Linux CIFS client will work together to provide a full-features UNIX-to-UNIX remote filesystem to compete with NFS to the desktop.
