Section 3.6. Summary

3.6. Summary

If you've been making changes to your Samba server's configuration as you've read this chapter, it should now be functioning in a rather minimal way on your network. You should understand the basics of the Samba configuration file format, and you should be able to make your server appear in clients' SMB/CIFS browsers. If at least one share is defined (as is common in sample smb.conf files), you should also be able to log on to the Samba server from clients, thanks to appropriate settings for the password options on both client and server. Of course, these tasks aren't enough; in most cases, you run a Samba server in order to share files or printers, which means you need to be able to define appropriate shares. This task is the topic of Chapter 4.
