This package contains Etersoft modified CIFS kernel module
with WINE@Etersoft sharing access support.
The CIFS VFS is a virtual file system for Linux to allow access to
servers and storage appliances compliant with the SNIA CIFS
Specification version 1.0 or later.
Popular servers such as Samba, Windows 2000, Windows XP and many others
support CIFS by default.
The CIFS VFS provides some support for older servers based on the more
primitive SMB (Server Message Block) protocol (you also can use the
Linux file system smbfs as an alternative for accessing these).
CIFS VFS is designed to take advantage of advanced network file system
features such as locking, Unicode (advanced internationalization),
hardlinks, dfs (hierarchical, replicated name space), distributed
caching and uses native TCP names (rather than RFC1001, Netbios names).
Unlike some other network file systems all key network function
including authentication is provided in kernel (and changes to mount
and/or a mount helper file are not required in order to enable the CIFS
VFS). With the addition of upcoming improvements to the mount helper
(mount.cifs) the CIFS VFS will be able to take advantage of the new CIFS
URL specification though.
