(In reply to Sean McBride from comment #2)
You're totally correct that NTLMv1 is insecure, enabling it is a bad idea, and
that FreeBSD's kernel smbfs (mount_smbfs) only supports the insecure v1.

However, kernel smbfs isn't going to grow smb2 support on the basis of a PR --
Bugzilla just isn't a "major feature wishlist" tracking system.  So morphing
this bug into "please implement v2+" isn't really viable.

One alternative would be to morph this into a Doc bug, where we spell out more
explicitly how limited smbfs support is in the mount_smbfs.8 manual page and/or
any web documentation of the filesystem.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
