Remote shadows on NT-based systems [CORE1038] #1455
Commented by: Mark Jones (mjnz)
The company I am doing some work for at the moment is also interested in doing this. I have done some research and a small change that allows this to work but I came across some additional security issues.
Firstly I see that there is talk about changing the RemoteFileOpenAbility flag in some other threads:
But this flag only current works for NFS shares, and furthermore it has no effect if NO_NFS is defined in the code - which is defined for WIN_NT, FREEBSD, NETBSD, VMS
I am unsure if this RemoteFileOpenAbility change is on anybody's todo list at this point. (if not I would probably be capable of doing it)
But there are some security problems under windows...
