You need to configure yum repository for that. But i am guessing you want to install samba-server in company server from installed samba server from your pc, this concept is not valid.

thanks

Let me give you the whole requirement given by my project manager to you.That will make the picture clear.

Hello,
Please set up the linux server as follow:
IP: 192.168.0.6
User Id: .....
Pass: ........

We need to do the following things:
1. Sertup SAMBA and give access to developer
2. Setup PHPMyAdmin
3. Flash Media Server
4. PHP

I have only given this information and i am new in this company and i have no knowledge regarding this.I have recently installed ubuntu on my own PC and i don't know what things are already installed on the server
so if you can help me now then i will be really grateful to you.

Do you have ssh client (like secureCRT, Xshell etc)? if yes just find relevant samba rpms for your redhat version and upload them to your linux server.
Hmmm... before that just check whether the samba already installed or not in default
#rpm -qa | grep samba

2. Setup PHPMyAdmin
3. Flash Media Server
4. PHP
From your pc
Code:
ssh root@192.168.0.6
Now you are logged onto the company server

Now, how to install software on the company server depends on what linux distribution it is running.
If RedHat based
Code:
yum install samba
If Debian based
Code:
apt-get install samba
Basically, you need to find out what OS the company server is running and then learn about software installation for that OS.

Samba, php and phpmyadmin should be no problem. I have no idea about "Flash Media Server" though.

Strange you are being asked to set this up, since it seems you have no experience.

Sorry, I'm not really familiar with suse: it uses rpms like readhat, but I'm not sure if it uses yum. Have a google for suse documentation, or perhaps ask here:

How grateful can you be? Could you share your salary with us for doing your job? Apparently you took a job you were not qualified for.
