Anyone installed Samba?





KHO
I have a network, a domain network. It works fine with my windows machines, but my Mac is outside of this network completely. I did some research and found that Samba may be my answer here, but Im wondering If anyone here has this installed so as to help guide me along the basics of setting it up (Yes, I know almost every distro of linux has a billion+ guides on everything you need, but sorting through them for a novice user of the system is easier said then done.)

My steps are usually:


  1. Install Samba via one of the following:

    • apt-get install samba on Debian-based systems, including Ubuntu
    • Other package management system (RPM, emerge, whatever else)
    • Otherwise, compile it from source


  2. Install Webmin, using either a package or the tar.gz (it's Perl, so doesn't need to be compiled, just installed)
  3. Use Webmin to configure it


I admit, I never learnt how to configure Samba (don't use it that much, only use it a bit on my local network), so I just use Webmin to do so Very Happy
