O'Reilly Network: FreeBSD basics: Accessing Microsoft Files Using Sharity-LightJul 16, 2000, 15:12 (2 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Dru Lavigne)
"It is possible to access data on a Microsoft computer from your FreeBSD system if the two computers are networked together. In this article, we'll be using a utility called Sharity-Light to allow a computer running Windows NT 4 to export a shared directory to another computer running FreeBSD."
"But first, a crash course in NT networking. Microsoft operating systems use the NetBIOS API to facilitate file sharing over the network. The NetBIOS API uses a computer's NetBIOS (or computer) name to find networked resources. A hidden component of this NetBIOS name is a hex number that represents the type of resources and services the computer has made available to other computers on the network."
