Folder Sharing in Ubuntu Linux with Samba

A Samba file server enables file sharing across different operating systems over a network. It lets you access your desktop files from a laptop and share files with Windows.



Installation -
sudo apt update
sudo apt install samba



Check Installation -
whereis samba

The following should be its output:

samba: /usr/sbin/samba /usr/lib/samba /etc/samba /usr/share/samba /usr/share/man/man7/samba.7.gz /usr/share/man/man8/samba.8.gz



Create samba conf file backup

sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.orig


Add Folder entry in /etc/samba/smb.conf which you want to share as below -

[Friends]                        # share folder name
    path = /home/atul/Desktop/Friends   # folder path
    read only = no                    
    browsable = yes



Start Samba Service
sudo systemctl restart smbd
sudo service smbd restart



Check if all working as configured
testparm


Now, Set password Samba User -
sudo smbpasswd -a <user_name>   # user_name should be existing system user


Share the Folder link to respective users -
Windows User - \\ip-address\Friends
Ubuntu User  - smb://ip-address/Friends
