The Remote Administration Protocol provides a simple remote procedure call (RPC)-like mechanism that enables clients to perform administrative functions on servers that implement the protocol. For a general description of such a mechanism, see [RAP]. The Remote Administration Protocol allows the following:
A client to retrieve an enumeration of the servers on the network.
A server to provide an enumeration of the file shares that are available on the server.
A server to return limited configuration information about the file and print services on the server.
As specified in [MS-CIFS] section 220.127.116.11, a file written to a printer share results in a print job being added to the printer queue. As specified in [MS-CIFS] section 18.104.22.168, a file is spooled to the printer when the file handle to a print file is closed.
