Samba has a registry based configuration backend: Configuration data is stored inside the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Samba\smbconf. A tool for reading and writing this registry stored configuration is "net conf". Access to the registry-stored configuration is performed through a module that makes use of the "reg_api" module which is the backend code for direct local access to the registry database. The reg_api interface is similar to the WINREG rpc interface. The basic goal of this project is to develop a remote variant of the "net conf" tool that allows for configuring a remote samba server with the same convenience as offered by the "net conf" tool.
