6.5. Summary

Although Linux often functions as an SMB/CIFS server with the help of Samba, the Samba suite and Linux kernel both provide support for SMB/CIFS client operations. You can use these features to enable NetBIOS name resolution for ordinary TCP/IP applications, to access files on Windows or other SMB/CIFS file servers, and to print to shared printers. An array of GUI tools can also make accessing SMB/CIFS resources easy for less computer-savvy users, although these tools may require configuration by more experienced users.
