SAMBA (file share) - Linux Server



Linux server file shares.

Setup shares figure:

  1. What to share?
  2. With Who?
  3. Security?
  4. Visible?
  5. VPN?



Ref: Commands:


  • sudo apt install samba    (Installer)
  • sudo apt install wsdd    (Discovery)
  • sudo service wsdd status     (Status)
  • sudo apt install avahi-daemon  (For Mac OS)
  • sudo service avahi-daemon status (For Mac OS)
