Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon) Samba Standalone Server With tdbsam Backend
Author: JT Smith
This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Ubuntu 7.10 and how to configure it to share files over the SMB protocol as well as how to add users. Samba is configured as standalone server, not as a domain controller. For this setup, I will use the Ubuntu Server installation CD but the same installation procedure will work on an Ubuntu desktop as well.
