SMB2 directory leasing and patent RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My query is regarding SMB2 directory leasing. (SMB2_GLOBAL_CAP_DIRECTORY_LEASING in [MS-SMB2] ).

    I see there is a patent existing for directory leasing. https://patents.google.com/patent/US20150149505A1/en

    Is there any restriction for implementing server side of SMB2 directory leasing ?

    Thanks

    Jimmy
