Hi Fernando,

> The small aplication to do SMB authentication, isn't to posible to me.

Actually, there may still be a way to do this.  I haven't actually attempted
this yet (I simply haven't had the time), but it should be possible to use
something like MinGW to compile the app, or one very similar.  In fact, it
should be possible to use the Win32 API directly with MinGW.  It's just a
matter of modifying the auth_smb.c program.  I'm wondering if maybe auth_smb
could be extended to use a plugin-style setup, so you could plug SMB or LDAP
or whatever authentication into it.
