Is there a possibility to temporarily share a directory per Samba?
With python3 i can serve the current directory per HTTP using:
python -m http.server.
I'd like to do the same thing with Samba.
I upgraded to 14.04 on all of my desktops and mostly use Samba shares. Today I was going to create a share on a desktop and was going to just right click and use a Nautilus share to save time. When I clicked on the share box in permissions it said "no share program installed" and by default started to install Samba. Has Samba become the default share for Ubuntu?
I had Samba working beautifully on F17 (after a bit of work :( I skipped F18 and went to F19. Never got Samba to work there. Recently went to F20. Still haven't been able to get Samba to work....until today...sort of.
For a long time I thought it was something in my config of Samba. However, today I now believe it's my lack of understanding of SELinux and security policies.
If you are using Samba Server on your network, you will want to create users that have access to use it. There’s a very simple command structure on how to do so.
I’m assuming that you’ve already installed Samba Server at this point.
