Summary

This chapter introduced the reader to the Windows SMB/CIFS file-sharing protocols and how they can be used on the Mac OS X platform. Samba is a full-featured server product that is easy to install and set up, and can replace a Windows NT/2000 server for file and print sharing. Samba has such a large number of configuration options that additional resources, such as Sams Teach Yourself Samba in 24 Hours, are recommended for complex configuration. To access Samba or Windows shares from a Mac OS X desktop, you can use the built-in SMB/CIFS client, or, for more power, use Sharity. The Sharity application creates the equivalent of the Windows Network Places network browser that can be used to graphically locate and mount SMB/CIFS shares.
