In fact , what is the different, i mean in purpose, between setting up semba or ftp in a linux machine.
so far, as i know, semba is just for window to map a drive in linux to access the file in linux, but ftp server can also do that ...

if i am wrong , may anyone correct me , thx

sAmba is for "network neighborhood" while ftp is a standalone protocol. they both are fr file transfer / access but are tailored for different applications

SAMBA IS DESIGNED TO ACCESS FILES, BACK-UP AND PRINT FROM A WINDOWS MACHINE TO A LINUX MACHINE, BUT IT CAN ALSO GO THE OTHER WAY. OR FROM LINUX TO LINUX. YOU CONFIGURE THE SAMBA SERVER TO ALLOW ACCESS FROM A CLIENT MACHINE. THE COMMAND smbclient IS JUST LIKE FTP AND smbmount IS LIKE NFS
