Simple Samba server

Following how-to was done on Ubuntu Server & Xubuntu 14.04
1) Install samba – [ sudo apt-get install samba ]
2) make a backup copy of default smb.conf – [ sudo mv (or cp) /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conforig ]
3) add all linux user accounts that will be accessing server – [ sudo useradd ‘username’ ]
4) create all linux user passwords – [ sudo passwd ‘username’ ] – you will have to enter the user’s password twice
5) create Samba user accounts & passwords – [ smbpasswd -a ‘username’ ] – this will prompt for the Samba password also
6) create new samba.conf file – [ sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf ]

Basic smb.conf file to get you going with one share
