You may configure the SAMBA server by editing the
/etc/samba/smb.conf file to change the default settings or add new settings. More information about each setting is available in the comments of the
/etc/samba/smb.conf file or by viewing the
/etc/samba/smb.conf manual page from the prompt with the following command typed at a terminal prompt:
Prior to editing the configuration file, you should make a copy of the original file and protect it from writing so you will have the original settings as a reference and to re-use as necessary.
sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.original
Now, edit the
/etc/samba/smb.conf file and make your changes.
