Samba is a suite of Unix applications that speak the SMB (Server Message Block) protocol. Many operating systems, including Windows and OS/2, use SMB to perform client-server networking. By supporting this protocol, Samba allows Unix servers to get in on the action, communicating with the same networking protocol as Microsoft Windows products. Thus, a Samba-enabled Unix machine can masquerade as a server on your Microsoft network and offer the following services: share one or more filesystems; share printers installed on both the server and its clients; assist clients with Network Neighborhood browsing; authenticate clients logging onto a Windows domain; provide or assist with WINS name server resolution. The software is freely distributable under the GNU public license.
