Subject Re: VFS smb bug

Happy to help you out, as you all are helping me out with your great libraries :)
I also developed a little wrapper to handle SSH Tunnels around VFS.
This will let me create a url such as :
So, for example, if I have a customer public ssh-server, I will be able to reach an smb server
behind the firewall doing:
I was testing this some months ago and encountered a little problem, but had no time to investigate.
I will get my hands on this again shortly, and will ask you again if needed.
Then, if you think this maybe interesting inside VFS, we may discuss a final implementation.
Last but not least, tell me how can I contribute to your FAQ. I will be glad to do it.
Have fun,

Yea! And you did a VERY good work in locating where the problem is.
Thanks alot!

It would be great if you add your insights to the faq:
I coded this stuff during the last hackaton at the ApacheCon Dublin, but
- as always - I am lazy in writing documentations :-(

Yes, I think you are right. I changed the code so that any information
provided by the url will override any data from the authenticator,
though, even if you provide all required informations the authenticator
will be called anyway ... room for improvements ;-)
Thanks for the time you take to figure this out.
