enumports command

The concept of a "port" is fairly foreign
to UNIX hosts. Under Windows NT/2000 print servers, a port
is associated with a port monitor and generally takes the form of
a local port (i.e. LPT1:, COM1:, FILE:) or a remote port
(i.e. LPD Port Monitor, etc...). By default, Samba has only one
port defined--"Samba Printer Port". Under
Windows NT/2000, all printers must have a valid port name.
If you wish to have a list of ports displayed (smbd
does not use a port name for anything) other than
the default "Samba Printer Port", you
can define enumports command to point to
a program which should generate a list of ports, one per line,
to standard output. This listing will then be used in response
to the level 1 and 2 EnumPorts() RPC.

Example: /usr/bin/listports

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
