samba

SMB/CIFS file, print, and login server for Unix
http://www.samba.org

Description:

Samba is an implementation of the SMB/CIFS protocol for Unix systems, providing support for cross-platform file and printer sharing with Microsoft Windows, OS X, and other Unix systems. Samba can also function as an NT4-style domain controller, and can integrate with both NT4 domains and Active Directory realms as a member server.

This package provides the components necessary to use Samba as a stand-alone file and print server or as an NT4 or Active Directory domain controller. For use in an NT4 domain or Active Directory realm, you will also need the winbind package.

This package is not required for connecting to existing SMB/CIFS servers (see smbclient) or for mounting remote filesystems (see cifs-utils).

4 This is the essential package for SAMBA network file sharing and is required for other PCs/SMB clients on your local network to see your machine. You cannot share any folders with the sharing plugins for Caja, Nemo, Nautilus etc. if "samba" is not installed since this contains the "smbd" (SMB-daemon) process which is the core of SAMBA/SMB file sharing. However, this package solely provides file-service for SMB, not printer sharing or other functions. If you are looking for the ability to connect to and mount shares on other PCs, you'll only need the "cifs-utils" package. There are several other packages/libraries which are peripherally related to SAMBA such as "winbind", "fusesmb" and "smbclient" which are not strictly necessary if you're looking for a minimalistic functioning SMB file server. If youre using a firewall on your PC, remember to open the necessary IP ports to allow others to connect to your server: 137,139 and 445, and others, depending on your needs.

5 Installation warned about removing files. Died silently, until I read the directions and typed: sudo touch /etc/libuser.conf. Awesome software that bridges Microsoft to *nix. MUST HAVE if you have more than one machine.

4 Since Redmond decided to help rather than hinder its development, this package has become really useful in a still undiscerning proprietary office world…`
