Description: Hewlett Packard Common Internet File System (CIFS) Server is a specification for a file access protocol designed for the Internet. HP CIFS is Hewlett-Packard`s proprietary implementation of CIFS for the UNIX operating system, known as Hewlett Packard Unix (HP-UX). HP CIFS Server merges the HP-UX and Windows environments by integrating HP-UX and Windows Servers features on HP-UX. Microsofts Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol, sometimes called Server Message Block (SMB), is a Windows network protocol for remote file and printer access. Because the HP CIFS Server product gives HP-UX access to the CIFS protocol, HP CIFS Server enables HP-UX to interoperate in network environments exposed to Windows clients and servers by means of a Windows native protocol. The HP CIFS Server source code is based on Samba, an Open Source Software. Recent versions of HP-UX support the HP 9000 series of computer systems.
