    Hi everybody,

    Just 1 silly question:
    When should I assign an IPSEC policy (AH+ESP) rather then the SMB policies
    digitally sign traffic?
    Is it just because SMB is "NETBIOS based" while IPSEC is "IP based" ?
    Is SMB digitally signed traffic capable of encryption too?
    When should I prefer one over the other?

    I know this last answer to this question "depends on the OS" but I need to
    understand what's the "real deal" behind that.

    TIA
