    Descriptive info: Projects.. Writings.. Implementing CIFS.. is a complete on-line book describing the inner workings of Microsoft's CIFS filesharing protocol suite.. It includes sections on NBT (NetBIOS over TCP), SMB (the Server Message Block protocol) and the Browse Service.. Oh!.. and it's also available in.. printed format.. from Prentice Hall PTR.. [Open Publication License].. Software.. BadfingerD.. A silly little thing that we found useful when testing those small, headless computers you can get cheaply these days.. Also useful for checking up on remote computers (if you are connected over a VPN).. BadfingerD.. is a simple daemon that is intended as a poor replacement for the old.. fingerd.. server.. Hence.. bad.. listens for a connection, but ignores whatever is sent to it.. Instead, it executes a shell command and sends the output (from stdout ) back to the caller.. [GPLv2].. Prequel.. The purpose of.. is to create an Open Source implementation of the PeerDist protocol (also known as Microsoft BranchCache ).. This project is in the early stages, but some testing code exists and more will be published as it becomes ready.. Testing code:.. Program code:.. [GPLv3].. STiB.. The purpose of the.. project is to create an Open Source implementation of Microsoft's BITS upload protocol.. BITS is the Windows service used by Windows Update to download patches and service packs in the background.. The download process uses plain old HTTP, but there is also an.. upload protocol.. , which is a proprietary extension to HTTP.. project currently provides a BITS upload client toolkit and a testing program.. [LGPLv2.. 1].. modules.. The ubiqx modules implement simple data structures  ...   of the the SMB/CIFS and SMB2 protocol family, plus a review of the new features in SMB2.. 2 and the basics of implementation.. The audience was full of practitioners of the art, senior developers, and leaders.. Slides are available.. in PDF format.. October, 2011.. An opportunity to present the wonders of the SMB/CIFS and SMB2 protocol suites to a bunch of coders, and hopefully spark some interest.. These protocols are neither the easiest nor the most rewarding, but they represent a large segment of the market.. I have seen several start-ups moving along nicely until they crash head-long into the brick wall that these protocols present.. I've seen similar things happen to established companies as well.. In addition to SMB/CIFS and SMB2, this presentation covered the Microsoft BranchCache and BITS Upload protocols.. September, 2011.. Further updates to the.. May, 2011.. An update on our activities in most of 2010 and early 2011, including.. , and the work done toward implementing BranchCache for Samba.. March, 2008.. A general overview of storage technology, including a comparison between ATA and SCSI, emerging technologies, changing politics, and potential areas for product development.. November, 2007.. Further updates to the INet 4011 presentation from previous years, combining slides from several sources with several new ones.. INet 4011 is a Network Administration class.. It's part of a University of Minnesota Bachelor of Applied Science program presented by the College of Continuing Education.. North Central Linux Symposium.. June, 2007.. I had a cold..

    Descriptive info: About.. (U*b ks), in reference to the modern computer: the.. ubiq.. uitous bo.. x.. name has been around since 1990.. Its first official use was as the name of a project that produced some free software utilities and modules, plus an associated UUCP address.. The UUCP address eventually morphed into the.. org.. website (.. this.. website), while the software modules lead to involvement with larger projects.. Those projects, in turn, led to a couple of magazine articles and  ...   is what finally lead to the creation of a separate business entity:.. This site,.. (aka.. net.. ) is the Free and Open development side of the house.. It hosts projects of various sizes and various degrees of completion, including the aforementioned book and the early modules that started everything.. Many of the smaller software projects are either very new or have stalled for lack of time.. If you are interested in helping out, please send us a note..

  • Title: Index of /proj/STiB
    Descriptive info: STiB Source.. The name STiB stands for something, but we're not quite sure what.. It could be Slow Transfer is Benign , STiB Terminology is Backwards , or Sipping Tea in Belgium , or it could just be BITS spelled backwards with a small 'i'.. BITS.. is an MS Windows file transfer service.. It is the service used to download Windows Update patches and service packs.. Its main feature is that it handles transfers in the background so that it can (in theory) avoid interfering with other tasks.. BITS supports both download and upload file transfers.. Downloads are performed using standard HTTP (or HTTPS), but uploads are performed using a set of proprietary extensions to HTTP.. STiB implements the BITS upload protocol (currently, only the client side).. The key components of the project, at present, are:.. stibtest:.. This is a testing program used to exercise the STiB client library (see stibclilib, below).. It can send a BITS Ping command to a server, send a file to the server using the BITS upload protocol, or start a BITS upload session under user control.. The latter is probably the most interesting from a testing perspective.. Entering a command in the following format:.. $ stibtest  ...   retrieved.. command stores the raw content returned by the server in the destination file.. stibclilib:.. This is a library of functions that can be used to build a BITS client.. There are individual functions for sending each of the five available BITS request messages.. In addition, there are functions that allow the user to compose and send their own message, parse URL strings, and parse server response messages.. Known bug in V0.. At present,.. stibclilib.. does not handle chunked encoding properly.. The planned solution is to revisit the entire mechanism used for reading the server's responses.. Gbfr:.. Growable buffers..

  • Title: ubiqx: modules
    Descriptive info: Modules.. Module Overview.. The goal of the.. project is to develop a set of clean, small, re-usable code modules which implement fundamental constructs and mechanisms, and to make them available under the terms of the.. GNU Library General Public License.. (LGPL).. These are the little training wheels that keep getting re-invented; the small parts in that drawer in the kitchen.. It's those things that are always in your way when you're looking for something else, but are never there when you really need them.. Our goal is to be the good neighbor who always seems to have the missing flange-screw or cup of sugar that you need when you're in the middle of a project.. modules are written in ANSI C and have been tested on a variety of platforms including AmigaOS, Linux, OpenBSD, Irix, etc.. The core library consists of those modules found in the.. ubiqx/library/.. directory in the distribution.. We expect that all of the core modules will compile and work without modification on any platform that has an ANSI C compiler.. If you find an exception, please let us know about it.. There are additional modules in.. ubiqx/DB.. ubiqx/DBimps.. , and sloppy example code in.. ubiqx/test-toys.. The modules currently available are:.. Lists, Queues, and Stacks.. These are the kinds of thing that are so basic that most programmers simply re-write them whenever they need them, and therein lies the problem.. We've seen plenty of otherwise good code that has half a dozen re-implementations of a linked list.. This is re-inventing the training wheel.. Do it once, do it right, and don't do it again!.. Binary Trees.. We originally wrote these for the Amiga, an environment in which one must to be careful about the use of stack space.. As a result, these modules are non-recursive.. They are also designed in an object-oriented style using regular C (not C++ or Objective C).. Three types of binary tree are available:.. Simple, unbalanced binary trees.. AVL height-balanced trees.. Splay trees.. The AVL and Splay Tree modules are descendant types of the basic Binary Tree module.. Each of these has its own characteristics.. The API is quite complete and, to make things easy, there is a generic interface that is the same for  ...   built on top of the ubi_SplayTree.. It provides the basic tools needed to build an in-memory hierarchical database.. Database Interface Modules.. These modules, located in the.. directory, provide APIs for three types of table/database managers.. ubi_DB:.. This is a base module.. It contains bottom-level typedefs and utility macros.. ubi_KeyDB:.. A key-access database API.. It provides an API for unsorted, unique-key data managers such as hash tables (eg.. ndbm/gdbm).. ubi_IndexDB:.. A descendant type of ubi_KeyDB, it adds support for sorted-order storage and duplicate keys.. ubi_SparseArrayDB:.. This is a descendant type of ubi_IndexDB.. It allows multiple sets of data to exist in the same database.. These sets are linked together in a hierarchical fashion.. An entry in a set may have a link to another set.. Sparse arrays are also called hierarchical or multi-dimensional associative arrays.. Database Implementation Modules.. directory, are the glue between the ubi_DB APIs and the actual table manager or database.. They also serve as examples, so that you can write additional implementation modules.. They include:.. kdb_ll:.. Implements a key-access database using an in-memory linked list.. Lookups are performed by sequential search, and a search must be performed before each insertion to prevent duplicate entries.. Not recommended for large lists.. It takes about 35 to 40 minutes to store and dump 44K records on our 486-based/120MHz Linux box at home.. kdb_xdbm:.. Implements a key-access database using ndbm or gdbm.. It is a tiny bit awkward at times, but it runs our database store and dump test in around 8 minutes, about 1/5th the time needed by kdb_ll.. Note that this module requires either ndbm or gdbm.. idb_tree:.. Implements an index-order database using binary splay trees.. This one finishes the store and dump test in.. less than six seconds.. Compare that against 35+ minutes for the linked lists!.. sa_tree:.. Implements a sparse array using splay trees.. Because the database types are object-oriented, this module can also run the store and dump test.. As would be expected, it is almost exactly as fast as idb_tree.. Note that the database implementation modules do.. not.. have the ubi_ prefix and are not considered to be part of the core library.. They do things like allocate memory and open files and other real-world stuff like that..
