How to Configure SAMBA Server (I am novice in Linux)

Postby Khalid Umer » Sat Dec 21, 2002 11:45 am

I want to move to Linux from Windows Platform.
I work for a company having 5 windows-98 workstations with ONE NT4 Server Machine. Initially I have installed Linux on 3 workstations and now want to setup SAMBA Server in order to give access of NT4 disk share on Linux workstation and vice versa.
Please help..... I am novice on Linux...

use the smbmount command as follows :

smbmount //DOMAIN-NAME/<Path to directory on NT share you wish to mount> /<directory on linux machine> -o ro username=<username required to access NT share> password=<password for this username>

Please do read the smbmount manpage to further verify the argument syntax
