Samba Pocket Reference by Robert Eckstein

Book Description

Samba is a cross-platform program that turns a Unix or Linux system into a file and print server for Microsoft Windows network clients. This book describes all the options for Samba's configuration file in quick-reference format. It also contains command-line options and related information on the use of the Samba daemons (smbd, nmbd, and winbindd)and the utilities in the Samba distribution. This edition covers Samba 2.x and the most important features of 3.0. New options pertain to Samba's acting as a primary domain controller and as a domain member server, its support for the use of Windows NT/2000/XP authentication and filesystem security on the host Unix system, and access to shared files and printers from Unix clients. System administrators who are familiar with Samba and want a handy reminder of how to administer it without the bulk of a full-sized book should find this pocket reference invaluable.

Nowadays he works as an independent consultant out of his home in Sedona, Arizona. When he is not busy reading the Samba mailing lists and learning about new computer technology, Jay might be analyzing stock market behavior, meditating, playing around in his recording studio, or hiking in the wilderness near his home. Robert Eckstein, an editor at O'Reilly, works mostly on Java books (notably Java Swing) and is also responsible for the XML Pocket Reference and Webmaster in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition.
