Description - Samba Pocket Reference by Robert Eckstein

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.
