Samba Pocket Reference
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: April 2001
Pages: 80

Samba is a cross-platform triumph: it turns a Unix or Linux system into a file and print server for Microsoft Windows network clients. Now you can let users store their files (and even important executables) in a single place for easy sharing and backup, protected by Unix or NT security mechanisms, and still offer such transparent access that PC users don't even realize they're going to another system.

This book describes all the options for Samba's configuration file in quick-reference format. It also contains command-line options and related information on the use of the Samba daemons (smbd and nmbd) and the utilities in the Samba distribution (smbsh, smbclient, smbstatus, smbtar nmblookup, smbpasswd, testparm, testprns, rpcclient, and a version of tcpdump enhanced to interpret the protocol used by Samba).

System administrators who are familiar with Samba and want a handy reminder of how to administer it without the bulk of a full-sized book will find this pocket reference invaluable.

Certainly cleared up my questions regarding the setting up of the smb.conf file and how to start and manage the demons.
