  EBSnet releases SMB for Embedded Systems

  Boston - Embedded Systems Conference November 19, 2002


EBSnet, Inc., an established provider of embedded Internet software since 1987, announces the release of RT-SMB, their Server Message Block protocol implementation developed specifically for embedded systems. The first of its kind, RT-SMB allows embedded devices to share files and printers over LAN and WAN.

EBSnet's RT-SMB is 100% ANSI-C and ports easily to any kernel or network stack. Drop in solutions are available for Linux/BSD sockets, Win32/Winsock, and RTKernel-32/RTIP. The SMB protocol runs on top of TCP/IP as an application-level protocol. RT-SMB runs in single-thread, multi-thread or polled mode, and supports share and user-level security as well as encrypted passwords.

RT-SMB has a small, self-contained memory footprint starting at 150 Kb. At this size, the protocol handles 5 simultaneous connections, 4 helper threads (plus one main thread, for 5 total, one for each connection), 1 user per connection, 10 open files per session and default transaction buffer size. For this small build, the code segment for SMB takes up 85Kb, the data segment takes up 65Kb.

"We are very pleased to be the first to make the SMB protocol available to embedded device developers" comments Tom Van Oudenaren, CTO of EBSnet. "We have designed RT-SMB specifically for small real-time systems. Our fifteen years experience allows us to accurately address the needs of the (embedded) industry, and provide timely, well-developed software."

EBSnet's RT-SMB is available immediately.
