the configuration file /etc/samba/smb.conf.default
tells me to read ENCRYPTION.txt:
# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba documentation.
I cannot find this file on my local machine, and I probably shouldn't, as the file is not part of the samba package:
In fact, the only documentation I can see seems to be in man page form.
Am I missing something, or is there some convention concerning documentation that I am not aware of?
Mind you, I am not actually asking about the encryption topic (I have managed to find ENCRYPTION.txt on the web) - I just want to understand where I would be expected to find this documentation.
I think you should post this to the mailing list https://mailman.archlinux.org/mailman/l … ch-general
