If you want to share files between your Ubuntu and Windows computers, the best option is to use Samba file sharing. In our previous posts, we did show you how to install and configure samba in ubuntu via command line, Today we will do the installation and configuration in ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat via GUI.
I am a new commer to linux... I have just a few week of experience with Linux under Ubuntu 13, but had to change last minute to RHEL because got frustrated with compatibility issues with CUDA and NVidia Driver and Mathematica installations .
But I am frustrated because I can not get anything isntalled in the graphical interface.
I have recently upgraded to samba 4 from samba 3.5 on a RHEL 6.3 platform. It is pleasing that the new version can replace AD DC and has it's own built it kdc and ldb database. Now my intention is to make linux boxes authenticate to samba4 by connecting through ldap as samba 4 works like a kerberized ldap server.
