[Figure 2.6: A Simple SMB Conversation.]

The client makes requests (some of which may be batched in AndX messages) and the server responds. The jCIFS Exists utility sends a NEGOTIATE PROTOCOL REQUEST followed by batched SESSION SETUP plus TREE CONNECT AndX requests. The TREE DISCONNECT exchange at the end is optional. When the client closes the session at the transport layer, all resources are released.
