3.2.1 Abstract Data Model

This section describes a hypothetical model of nonbrowser server data organization that can be implemented to support the CIFS Browser Protocol. The purpose of this description is to help explain how this aspect of the protocol works. This specification does not prescribe that implementations adhere to this model, as long as their external behavior is consistent with the behavior described throughout this document.

A nonbrowser server MUST implement the abstract data model for a server, as specified in [MS-RAP].

In addition to that information, the nonbrowser server MUST implement the following:

Server.HostAnnouncementCount: The number of times the HostAnnouncement timer (as specified in section 3.2.2) has expired.

Server.Comment: A null-terminated ASCII string that MUST be less than or equal to 43 bytes in length including the null terminator.
