  • Awesome, it'll be great to have it all in one doc. But could you make it available in other formats? I don't have anything that reads docx/doc/xps/pdf. :-)

  • Coming soon - all blog posts downloadable in WordStar!

    :-P

  • Is there any reference material available that defines what the various debug functions do? I understand that INCO and MEET are "Functions related to replicating files between DFSR nodes" but that doesnt really tell me what the individual functions do.

  • Not exactly. Much of those specifics are proprietary and not exposed through a public API. However, there is a fair amount of overall function/functionality spec documentation here:

  • arosten,

    Please see the WSPP documentation for DFS-R. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd357958(PROT.13).aspx explains that INCO is for Inbound connection and Meet module downloads and installs the files.

    Cheers
