Special Edition Using Samba is a complete reference and resource for using the increasingly popular Samba package. Samba provides an easy and seamless link between servers running Linux or UNIX and other operating systems. Learn to obtain, install, and configure Samba with examples and protocol traces where necessary. Sections of the smb.conf file are covered in detail, as well as the notion of automation via macros. Information on accessing Samba from various clients is provided, including Windows for Workgroups, Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000, OS2, and the UNIX clients, smbclient and rpcclient. Also covered are the various password options and issues along with handling roaming profiles for both Windows 9X and Windows NT clients. An appendix provides information on each smb.conf parameter including which version of Samba the parameter has been introduced in or removed from, along with its description.
