4.1 Connecting to a Share by Using a Multi-Protocol Negotiate

The following diagram shows the steps taken by a client that is negotiating SMB2 by using an SMB-style negotiate.

  6. The server processes the token received with GSS and gets a successful return code. The server responds to client with an SMB2 SESSION_SETUP Response with Status equal to STATUS_SUCCESS and the response containing the output token from GSS.

  7. The client completes the authentication and sends an SMB2 TREE_CONNECT Request with the SessionId for the session, and a tree connect request containing the Unicode share name "\\smb2server\IPC$".
