Question: Can we share files and printers between UNIX and Windows world?
UNIX NFS/LPD: Native TCP/IP applications
Windows file/printer sharing: NetBIOS using SMB (Server Message Block Protocol)
Two things needed:
Run NetBIOS on a TCP/IP
Map NetBIOS addresses (names) to TCP/IP addresses (numbers)
What is Samba
A suite of Unix applications that speak Server Message Block (SMB)
Share directory trees
Share printers among Windows client on the network
Assist clients with network browsing
Authenticate clients logging onto a Windows domain
Provide or assist with Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) name-server resolution
Allow users on a Unix to access folders and printers that Windows Systems offer on the network.
How did SAMBA get started
Samba was started in early 1990s by Andrew Tridgell who wanted to mount a disk share from his Unix host on to a DOC PC
Reverse Engineered the SMB/NetBIOS protocol using packet sniffer
Thus was born the SAMBA package as we know it today
Samba is currently maintained and extended by a group of volunteers and is Open source software
Samba development has been sponsored by universities, organizations, such as HP, IBM, etc.
Microsoft offered SMB protocol definition to IETF in 1996 as Common Internet File System (CIFS)
