1.5 Prerequisites/Preconditions

The Remote Administration Protocol has the following preconditions:

  • The SMB dialect negotiated between a Remote Administration Protocol client and a server has to be for Microsoft LAN Manager version 1.0 or later, as specified in [MS-SMB] section 3.2.4.2.2.

  • The Remote Administration Protocol also relies on a client establishing a connection to an SMB server. Before a client can issue Remote Administration Protocol commands, it has to establish a connection to the server and successfully perform a TreeConnect SMB to the "IPC$" share on the server. For more details about TreeConnect SMB and IPC$ shares, see [MS-SMB] section 2.2.4.7.1, and [MS-CIFS] section 3.2.4.42.
