NAME
samba - A Windows SMB/CIFS fileserver for UNIX
SYNOPSIS
samba
DESCRIPTION
The Samba software suite is a collection of programs that implements the Server Message Block (commonly abbreviated as SMB) protocol for UNIX systems. This protocol is sometimes also referred to as the Common Internet File System (CIFS). For a more thorough description, see http://www.ubiqx.org/cifs/. Samba also implements the NetBIOS protocol in nmbd. smbd(1M) The smbd daemon provides the file and print services to SMB clients, such as Windows 95/98, Windows NT, Windows for Workgroups or LanManager. The configuration file for this daemon is described in smb.conf(4) nmbd(1M) The nmbd daemon provides NetBIOS nameservice and browsing support. The configuration file for this daemon is described in smb.conf(4) smbclient(1) The smbclient program implements a simple ftp-like client. This is useful for accessing SMB shares on other compatible servers (such as Windows NT), and can also be used to allow a UNIX box to print to a printer attached to any SMB server (such as a PC running Windows NT). testparm(1) The testparm utility is a simple syntax checker for Samba's smb.conf(4) configuration file. testprns(1) The testprns utility supports testing printer names defined in your printcap file used by Samba. smbstatus(1) The smbstatus tool provides access to information about the current connections to smbd. nmblookup(1) The nmblookup tools allows NetBIOS name queries to be made from a UNIX host. smbpasswd(1M) The smbpasswd command is a tool for changing LanMan and Windows NT password hashes on Samba and Windows NT servers. smbcacls(1) The smbcacls command is a tool to set ACL's on remote CIFS servers. smbsh(1) The smbsh command is a program that allows you to run a unix shell with with an overloaded VFS. smbtree(1) The smbtree command is a text-based network neighborhood tool. smbtar(1) The smbtar can make backups of data on CIFS/SMB servers. smbspool(1M) smbspool is a helper utility for printing on printers connected to CIFS servers. smbcontrol(1) smbcontrol is a utility that can change the behaviour of running samba daemons. rpcclient(1) rpcclient is a utility that can be used to execute RPC commands on remote CIFS servers. pdbedit(1M) The pdbedit command can be used to maintain the local user database on a samba server. findsmb(1) The findsmb command can be used to find SMB servers on the local network. net(1M) The net command is supposed to work similar to the DOS/Windows NET.EXE command. swat(1M) swat is a web-based interface to configuring smb.conf. winbindd(1M) winbindd is a daemon that is used for integrating authentication and the user database into unix. wbinfo(1) wbinfo is a utility that retrieves and stores information related to winbind. profiles(1) profiles is a command-line utility that can be used to replace all occurences of a certain SID with another SID. log2pcap(1) log2pcap is a utility for generating pcap trace files from Samba log files. vfstest(1) vfstest is a utility that can be used to test vfs modules. ntlm_auth(1) ntlm_auth is a helper-utility for external programs wanting to do NTLM-authentication. smbmount(1M), smbumount(1M), smbmnt(1M) smbmount,smbumount and smbmnt are commands that can be used to mount CIFS/SMB shares on Linux. smbcquotas(1) smbcquotas is a tool that can set remote QUOTA's on server with NTFS 5.
COMPONENTS
The Samba suite is made up of several components. Each component is described in a separate manual page. It is strongly recommended that you read the documentation that comes with Samba and the manual pages of those components that you use. If the manual pages and documents aren't clear enough then please visit http://devel.samba.org for information on how to file a bug report or submit a patch. If you require help, visit the Samba webpage at http://www.samba.org/ and explore the many option available to you.
AVAILABILITY
The Samba software suite is licensed under the GNU Public License(GPL). A copy of that license should have come with the package in the file COPYING. You are encouraged to distribute copies of the Samba suite, but please obey the terms of this license. The latest version of the Samba suite can be obtained via anonymous ftp from samba.org in the directory pub/samba/. It is also available on several mirror sites worldwide. You may also find useful information about Samba on the newsgroup comp.protocol.smb and the Samba mailing list. Details on how to join the mailing list are given in the README file that comes with Samba. If you have access to a WWW viewer (such as Mozilla or Konqueror) then you will also find lots of useful information, including back issues of the Samba mailing list, at http://lists.samba.org.
VERSION
This man page is correct for version 3.0 of the Samba suite.
CONTRIBUTIONS
If you wish to contribute to the Samba project, then I suggest you join the Samba mailing list at http://lists.samba.org. If you have patches to submit, visit http://devel.samba.org/ for information on how to do it properly. We prefer patches in diff -u format.
CONTRIBUTORS
Contributors to the project are now too numerous to mention here but all deserve the thanks of all Samba users. To see a full list, look at the change-log in the source package for the pre-CVS changes and at http://cvs.samba.org/ for the contributors to Samba post-CVS. CVS is the Open Source source code control system used by the Samba Team to develop Samba. The project would have been unmanageable without it.
AUTHOR
The original Samba software and related utilities were created by Andrew Tridgell. Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed. The original Samba man pages were written by Karl Auer. The man page sources were converted to YODL format (another excellent piece of Open Source software, available at ftp://ftp.icce.rug.nl/pub/unix/) and updated for the Samba 2.0 release by Jeremy Allison. The conversion to DocBook for Samba 2.2 was done by Gerald Carter. The conversion to DocBook XML 4.2 for Samba 3.0 was done by Alexander Bokovoy.

NOTES
Source for Samba is available on http://opensolaris.org. Samba(7) delivers the set of four SMF(5) services as can be seen from the following example: $ svcs samba wins winbind swat STATE STIME FMRI disabled Apr_21 svc:/network/samba:default disabled Apr_21 svc:/network/winbind:default disabled Apr_21 svc:/network/wins:default disabled Apr_21 svc:/network/swat:default where the services are: "samba" runs the smbd daemon managing the CIFS sessions "wins" runs the nmbd daemon enabling the browsing (WINS) "winbind" runs the winbindd daemon making the domain idmap "swat" Samba Web Administration Tool is a service providing access to browser-based Samba administration interface and on-line documentation. The service runs on software loopback network interface on port 901/tcp, i.e. opening "http://localhost:901/" in browser will access the SWAT service on local machine. Please note: SWAT uses HTTP Basic Authentication scheme where user name and passwords are sent over the network in clear text. In the SWAT case the user name is root. Transferring such sensitive data is advisable only on the software loopback network interface or over secure networks. Samba 3.0 01/19/2009 SAMBA(7)
