Hi,

Can any one say the difference between RPC and SMB? After reading some
documents I got confused over the difference between the two.

The definitions provided for the two sounds similar, as both request
services from other computers in the network and also SMB provides a
method to read and write files.
-------------------------------------------------------------

The Server Message Block Protocol (SMB protocol) provides a method for
client applications in a computer to read and write to files on and to
request services from server programs in a computer network.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is a protocol that one program can use to
request a service from a program located in another computer in a
network without having to understand network details.
