Debian to windows file sharing programs


Hi all, Is there any programs I can use to share files and folders on my debian server to my windows 7

So it the folders and files can "act" as if they was normal windows ones.

cheers

You probably want Samba.

sudo apt-get install samba

If you want to manage shares via the web UI, use swat. (Samba Web Administration Tool)
Do not use swat & hand edit the smb.conf file. Swat will overwrite the file.

sudo apt-get install swat

Swat runs on port 901.

For configuration of swat, see here: http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/...tion/SWAT.html


edit /etc/samba/smb.conf to add shares.

Ideally, use the same workgroup name you use in Windows.

eg: workgroup = mywindowsworkgroup


Here is a very simple share example:

Below #======================= Share Definitions =======================

Add a share definition. You will also find some sample shares defined in the default
config.

eg:

[Music]
public = yes
path = /var/local/Media/Music

Add a samba user:

smbpasswd -a myusername

restart samba:

/etc/init.d/samba force-reload.

As I mentioned, this is a very simple samba sample.

Good luck.
