Re: What is the best way to install Samba
Ok I have my debian machine connected to a XP machine through a router.
I have made several attemps to install samba using apt-get and I have
modified the smb.conf on several occations. My first thought was to
start with a fresh reinstall of Samba so that I could start with the
original smb.conf file, but a simple apt-get remove -> apt-get install
does not replace the original smb.conf file. I am lost on this one.
Do I need a static IP? and if so How?
How do I start with a fresh installation of Samba?
How can I find out what I have installed using apt-get?
This works for Sarge and Win98 and may give you some pointers:
Perhaps you could modify the article (it is on a wiki) if you find you
need to do anything differently?
