Summary: Samba-3.0.6Samba-3.0.7

Here is text from the Samba README file. Perhaps it could be used to replace the one-line sentence describing Samba at the beginning of the BLFS instructions (there seems to be a desire to more fully describe Samba's capability):

"Here is a very short list of what samba includes, and what it does. For many networks this can be simply summarized by "Samba provides a complete replacement for Windows NT, Warp, NFS or Netware servers."

  • a SMB server, to provide Windows NT and LAN Manager-style file and print services to SMB clients such as Windows 95, Warp Server, smbfs and others.
  • a Windows NT 4.0 Domain Controller replacement.
  • a file/print server that can act as a member of a Windows NT 4.0 or Active Directory domain.
  • a NetBIOS (rfc1001/1002) nameserver, which amongst other things gives browsing support. Samba can be the master browser on your LAN if you wish.
  • a ftp-like SMB client so you can access PC resources (disks and printers) from UNIX, Netware, and other operating systems
  • a tar extension to the client for backing up PCs
  • limited command-line tool that supports some of the NT administrative functionality, which can be used on Samba, NT workstation and NT server."
