      SAMBA is a  File Server to share the files under heterogeneous  environment  . This Service is developed by Andrew Tridgel in 1992 -93 . Samba is also called CIFS(Common Internet File Server/ Sharing).

      Samba uses the SMB protocol to share files and printers across a network connection. Operating systems that support this protocol include Microsoft Windows, OS/2, and Linux

      Samba is useful if you have a network of both Windows and Linux machines. Samba allows files and printers to be shared by all the systems in a network

      With Samba, UNIX files and printers can be shared with Windows clients and vice versa. Samba supports the Session Message Block (SMB) protocol. Nearly all Windows computers include SMB support with their internal network subsystems (NetBIOS in particular).

      Features of SAMBA

      1)       File or directory sharing

      2)      Resource sharing (CDROM / Printers)

      3)      Name resolution

      4)      Browser facility

      5)      User authentication is required
