mpr.dll and Microsoft networking

Post by madmax69 » Tue Jan 16, 2007 1:40 pm

Does anyone know if calls to mpr.dll and hooks into the Microsoft networking layer are available yet or planned in the near future for ReactOS?

I was writing a bit of code which hooks into mpr.dll to make network connections to mapped drive letters. I notice mpr.dll in the WINE32 distro but wasn't sure if it was implemented in ROS yet.

I had some mapping code to reproduce the functionality of NET USE which I wanted to play with once the next ROS distro is stable. At the moment having ROS isolated in QEMU other than via FTP is a bit of a pain and it would be nice to map-up drive letters.

Yes planed. Not existing yet at all.

Reactos Roadmap 0.4.x http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/0.4.x
SMB filesystem client.
This feature will either appear sometime in 0.3.x or on the 0.4.0 release.
Not 0.3.1 as far as I know.

SMB is Microsoft Networking. To be correctly Small Machine Business Networking developed first by Sun Microsystem then altered by Microsoft and is what Microsoft calls Microsoft Networking.

Samba will most like be the source of that interface. Without SMB filesystem client mpr.dll cannot work.

Thanks, I didn't know how far off SAMBA TNG was to be able to emulate the MS client layer

Samba-TNG provides the client side (tools), server side is work in progress.

It´s just a pity there is no realtime fs drivers yet, so nu there is just CMD, no network support in explorer yet. But as the roadmap tells us 0.4 will have http://www.reactos.org/en/about_roadmap.html#04.
