Technology's next workshop covers beginning Samba administration for
Windows file and printer sharing. The workshop will be held Tuesday,
July 29, 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., in Everett, Wash. It will cover the
basics of Samba installations and configurations for providing standard
Windows file and printer services.
Samba is a free SMB (Server Message Block) and CIFS (Common Internet
File Sharing) client and server for Unix-type systems. It is the
standard protocol used with Microsoft Windows for sharing files
and printers. Combined with a GNU/Linux or BSD operating system,
Samba can be used as a low-cost replacement for file or printer
The three-hour workshop will also cover common Samba configuration
sections and parameters, starting the daemons, listing available
shares, using the Samba command-line client, setting up a printer
service, and common graphical interfaces for Samba.
This Samba seminar is one of a series of ongoing training events
covering open source software provided by Puget Sound Technology.
