Samba - Configuration tool GUI


Is there some kind of GUI based configuration tool for Samba.

There is "system-config-samba" in Fedora Core 3.
Is there something similar for Debian Sarge 3.1?

Or I need to configure it myself changing text files?

SWAT is the Samba Web Administration Tool and it allows control of most Samba settings through your web browser.
aptitude install swat
Make sure you read the documentation though, as you need to tweak a couple of config files (/etc/inetd.conf and/or services) to allow yourself to access once it's installed.

there's also a webmin-samba package. It uses the webmin package and allows you to configure samba through a web browser

I prefer text files myself... the trouble is that you usually need to find a good reference to use when editing them without being completely lost or screwing your configuration. I've seen a few.. google until you find one you like if you decide to go this route.

For a definitive source of Samba information, pick up a copy of "Samba Unleashed".
