Samba does IPv6

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Samba 3.2.0 was released yesterday. Among its many new features is IPv6 support. This is an important step towards having an IPv6-capable CIFS stack on every platform. Windows Vista and Server 2008 have supported CIFS-over-IPv6 for some time, as has the Linux in-kernel CIFS client. Erion Consultancy has more information on the development.

For more on IPv6 support on Windows, including CIFS, check out this presentation (PDF) from SambaXP 2008, or this one from SambaXP 2007.
