Share directories and drives with Samba



Samba è un protoccolo utilizzato in diversi sistemi operativi per condividere alcune risorse come directories o stampanti. Questo strumento ti permette di configurare la macchina come un server Samba usando il protocollo SMB/CIFS. Questo protocollo è anche usato da Windows(R) e le stazioni di lavoro con questo sistema operativo possono accedere alla risorse del derver Samba.


To be accessed from other workstations, the server has to have a fixed IP address. This can be specified directly on the server, for example with , or at the DHCP server which identifies the station with its MAC-address and give it always the same address. The firewall has also to allow the incoming requests to the Samba server.

Procedura guidata - server autonomo

The netbios name is the name which will be used to designate the server on the network.

  • user: the client must be authorized to access the resource

  • share: the client authenticates itself separately for each share

You can specify which hosts are allowed to access the resources, with IP address or host name.

Specify the server banner. The banner is the way this server will be described in the Windows workstations.

The place where Samba can log information can be specified at the next step.

The wizard displays a list of the chosen parameters before you accept the configuration. When accepted, the configuration will be written in /etc/samba/smb.conf.

Wizard - Primary domain controller

If the "Primary domain controller" option is selected, the wizard asks for indication if Wins is to support or not and to provide admin users names. The following steps are then the same as for standalone server, except you can choose also the security mode:
