This is a very comprehensive tool for configuring your local SAMBA server/services setup, allowing you to fine tune many details of this system for file and printer sharing. However, it is several years old and its default setup will overwrite your existing SMB.conf, possibly causing your system to be unreachacle if you choose to apply it immediately. This should only be used by systems administrators or if you need to dig into the SMBd config without editing it by hand. Otherwise, try out "nemo-share" or "caja-share" to share your folders over the network.

hard to use, messed up system, had to reinstall Mint

Originally a nice concept of a GUI, but nowadays rather outdated with its settings. The smb.conf it creates is way too overcomplicated. In Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca you don’t really need it as you can share any of your folders in (any) file manager by simply right clicking on it and making it public.

Makes setting up a SMBserver easy for first time users. Gadmin frontend tools rock!
