SAMBA

https://www.samba.org/
File-sharing implementation

Samba provides a complete replacement for Windows NT, Warp, NFS, or netware servers. Most common uses include:

  • SMB server, to provide Windows NT and LAN Manager-style file and print services to SMB clients such as Windows 95, Warp Server, smbfs and others.
  • NetBIOS (rfc1001/1002) nameserver, which amongst other things gives browsing support. Samba can be the master browser on your LAN if you wish.
  • ftp-like SMB client so you can access PC resources (disks and printers) from unix, Netware and other operating systems
  • tar extension to the client for backing up PCs
  • limited command-line tool that supports some of the NT administrative functionality, which can be used on Samba, NT workstation and NT server.
