Samba TNG

Samba TNG is a tiny SMB/CIFS suite (server, client, and utilities) for Unix-like operating systems. This software is concentrating on MSRPC interoperability with Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, 2003, and 2008. Windows 7 support is in progress. It provides PDC support and tools to remotely administer NT servers and workstations.
