samba: The free SMB / CIFS fileserver and client1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Samba is a SMB server that runs on Unix and other operating systems. It allows these operating systems (currently Unix, Netware, OS/2 and AmigaDOS) to act as a file and print server for SMB and CIFS clients. There are many Lan-Manager compatible clients such as LanManager for DOS, Windows for Workgroups, Windows NT, Windows 95, Linux smbfs, OS/2, Pathworks and more.

Please note that there are significant security implications to running this server, and the smb.conf(5) manpage should be regarded as mandatory reading before proceeding with installation.
