Is it possible to use QNTC with the new version of Windows Server 2012 (R2)?

We're currently running SMBCLIENT 2.2.8 and it has served us well for years,
but the Windows folks are doing some server upgrades to the new 2012 version
and our Samba client is no longer working.

Based on a little research, it appears that only Samba versions later than
3.6 will work with MS Server 2012. Since I am *not* a C-programmer and there
doesn't appear to be any binaries available for our platform (at V6R1) it
seems that our only options are (1) Use QNTC, (2) Convince the MS-Admins
that they need to run the NFS server utilities on each of their servers
so that we can mount their drives or (3) Convince the MS-Admins that we
must use FTP to push files to each server.

I would prefer to use option (1) but it doesn't seem to work. So I guess
we're stuck with options (2) and (3)...

BTW, upgrading to a V7Rx is not likely to happen since we're slated to move
off the platform in the next 18-24 months (to outsourced *NIX servers running

Any thoughts?
