LinuxPR: "Using Samba" from O'Reilly

Nov 18, 1999, 03:44 (5 Talkback[s])

"Using Samba Book Released; Officially Adopted by Samba Team."

"O'Reilly & Associates has announced the release of Using Samba, which has been officially adopted by the Samba team under an open content license. This new book is a comprehensive guide to Samba administration, including such recent additions as integration with Windows NT domains and the SWAT graphic configuration tool."

"Samba is a cross-platform triumph," says Andy Oram, Editor, O'Reilly & Associates. "It turns a Unix or Linux system into a file and print server for Microsoft Windows network clients. Now you can let users store their files (and even important executables) in a single place for easy sharing and backup, protected by Unix or NT security mechanisms, and still offer such transparent access that PC users don't even realize they're going to another system. The magic behind Samba is that it recognizes and speaks the SMB protocol developed by Microsoft for file and printer sharing on its own systems."
