Samba configuration with Ubuntu

After Six Year of Silent I thought to write new post about Samba installation

1. Install Samba
apt-get install samba samba-common python-glade2 system-config-samba 
 
2. Backup the original Samba conf file

mv /etc/samba/smb.cnf /etc/samba/smb.cnf.bak 
 
3. Edit the smb.conf file

vim /etc/samba/smb.cnf 

and add the following lines
[global]
workgroup = WORKGROUP
server string = Samba Server %v
netbios name = ubuntu
security = user
map to guest = bad user
dns proxy = no
#============================ Share Definitions ============================== 


[Anonymous]
comment = Anonymous Share
path = /samba/public
browsable =yes
writable = yes
guest ok = yes
public = yes
read only = no
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777 


[prabath]
comment = Prabaths profiles
path = /home/prabath
guest ok = no
browseable = yes
create mask = 0777
directory mask = 0777
valid users = prabath
writable = yes

#for each profile please repeat the above [prabath] config


4. Create Anonymous Folder
mkdir -p /samba/anonymous


5. Restart the Samba Server
service smbd restart


6. Add user to new user
sudo adduser prabath
7. Adding user to Samba
smbpasswd -a prabath
8. Finally restart Samba again
service smb restart
