Samba 4.9.4 Description:

Samba for Linux : A set of utilities that implement the SMB protocol on Linux, allowing users to access Windows shares

Samba Samba is engineered in such a way that it provides secure, fast and stable seamless file and print services to both SMB/CIFS clients. In addition, it supports Active Directory (AD). The Samba project is comprised of two key programs, the SMB saemon (smbd), which handles both "user mode" and "share mode" authorization and authentication processes, and nmbd, which is used for handling name resolution and browsing. In time, the Samba project evolved into a comprehensive piece of software that implements several services and protocols, including NBT (NetBIOS over TCP/IP), DCE/RPC (MSRPC), WINS server, Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database, Local Security Authority (LSA) service, and much more. It uses the TCP/IP protocol and allows users to create shares on Linux distributions that can be accessed without hassle on any Microsoft Windows operating system.
