Introduction

Since 1992, Samba provides file and print services based on the server message block (SMB) protocol. This protocol was released by Microsoft as part of the open specifications.

Samba helps with interoperability between systems running Microsoft Windows and those running one of the flavor of Unix like Linux. The toolkit allows systems to become part of the Active Directory environment and join a domain controller or domain member.
