Setup Samba on Ubuntu

September 15, 2011 Leave a comment

1.To install, first open a terminal window and enter the following command:

sudo apt-get install samba smbfs
sudo gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf

2. Find this section in the file:

####### Authentication #######

# “security = user” is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
# in this server for every user accessing the server. See
# /usr/share/doc/samba-doc/htmldocs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/ServerType.html
# in the samba-doc package for details.
;  security = user

3. uncomment the “sercurit = user” like this

####### Authentication #######

# “security = user” is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
# in this server for every user accessing the server. See
# /usr/share/doc/samba-doc/htmldocs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/ServerType.html
# in the samba-doc package for details.
security = user

5.Lock user in their home directory(You may skip this, if it’s not needed).

[homes]
   comment = Home Directory
   read only = No
   browseable = No
   valid users = %S

6.Add share dictorey(You may skip this, if it’s not needed):

[Shared]
   comment = Global Share - All Users
   path = /samba/shared
   read only = No
   guest ok = Yes
   public = Yes
   browseable = Yes
   create mask = 0666
   directory mask = 0777

7.Create a User for samba(You can skip this step if you already have the user created in linux)

adduser theUserNameYouWant

8.then we need to run the smbpasswd utility to create a samba password for the user.

sudo smbpasswd -a theUserNameYouCreated

9. Restart your samba service by using following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/smb restart
