samba – Share files and folders on Debian machine with windows users

March 14, 2013 Leave a comment

Problem:

Needed to share a file (Thunderbird software) on my debian machine with users on windows.

Solution:
As root on debian ip 192.168.x.x
1. Install samba. (I used synaptic. YMMV)

$ apt-get install samba

2. vim /etc/samba/smb.conf
Add the following at the end of the file.

[Software]
path=”/home/user/software”
browsable = yes
public = yes

Save and close.

3. Add a samba user. This has to be an existing user on your box.

smbpasswd -a user

4. Stop and start samba

/etc/init.d/samba stop
/etc/init.d/samba start

Now on the windows machine (depending on your windows version)
In explorer
Add a network drive then browse to //192.168.x.x/software
