3 Examples

This section contains a set of examples illustrating common uses of the File Access Services. These examples provide more details of the system summary use cases introduced in section 2.5. The examples are as follows:

  •  Access a File in a Workgroup

  •  Access a File in a Domain

  •  Two Applications Communicate Through a Shared File

  •  Access a Remote File Using WebDAV

Additionally, the examples include a number of referenced sub-scenarios, which are documented separately, in section 3.5. The sequence diagram examples in this section are shown in terms of messages defined in version 2 of SMB file access protocols [MS-SMB2] and version 3 of NFS file access protocols [RFC1813]. The semantics defined for these versions of the protocol can be mapped to other versions of the respective protocols.
