1.3 Overview

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, a file written to a printer share results in a print job being added to the printer queue. As specified in [MS-CIFS] section, a file is spooled to the printer when the file handle to a print file is closed.
