How to set a share folder in Fedora 7?


I want access this share folder from other windows pcs. I feel samba is a kind of Active dictory and difficult to setup and management, I just want setup a share folder in Fedora, so any body can share it in a sample way. Thank you for your and advice and idea.

Hi,

To access any directory (in Linux, they're called directories, not folders) from a Windows PC you will have to do one of two things:

1. Configure samba on your linux box.
2. Install Unix Services for Windows on your PC.

By far, the easiest way is to set up samba. If you're into pain and fustration, install Unix Service for Windows.

See www.samba.org for all the gory details (just kidding, it's really easy).

Have fun,
Mark

You could also think about using ftp or http if the other users should only have read only access.
