    The SMB Protocol is defined as whatever the Microsoft programmers felt
    like doing at the time, together with several hacks to repair previous
    holes and - the way it looks - some hacks put in especially to break
    features used only by Samba.

    RFC? Just think of the comments!

    Actually, there /are/ several RFCs (standards) for SMB, and a couple of
    (expired) RFCs (proposals) for CIFS

    A quick google search will bring most of them up for you, but it's best
    to go to the source: http://www.rfc-editor.org/

    For SMB: there's
    * RFC1001 - Protocol standard for a NetBIOS service on a TCP/UDP
    transport: Concepts and methods
    * RFC1002 - Protocol standard for a NetBIOS service on a TCP/UDP
    transport: Detailed specifications
    * RFC1088 - Standard for the transmission of IP datagrams over NetBIOS
    networks

    You can find the CIFS proposal RFC in various places, like
    http://www.ubiqx.org/cifs/rfc-draft/...v1-spec-02.txt
