File Sharing for local access

Samba File Server

Install Samba

There are several way to do so, my favorite being Tasksel as it is simple and can be done from a desktop session as well as from SSH. If on a desktop session, open a terminal window.

Type :
sudo tasksel

In the window that appear now, use the arrow to select the entry “Samba File Server”, confirm, the different steps that pop-up and you are done.

Configure Samba
