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).

This is the core package for SAMBA network file and printer sharing and is required for other PCs/SMB clients on your local network to see your machine. The sharing plugins for Caja, Nemo, Nautilus etc. won't work if samba is not installed. If youre using a firewall on your PC, open ports 139 and 445 to allow others to connect to your server.

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.

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