Samba Server Installation on Debian 8 (Jessie)

This tutorial explains the installation of a Samba fileserver on Debian 8 and shows you how to configure Samba to share files over the SMB/CIFS the protocol. Samba is configured as a standalone server, not as a domain controller. In the resulting setup, every user has his own home directory, all users have a shared group directory with read-/write access and optionally an anonymous share is added.
