    Setup Samba from runlevel 3


    I'm very new to linux.

    I need to setup samba on a Fedora Core 2 system that doesn't have a desktop environment, so I only have the console.

    Is there a tutorial anywhere that would show me how to set up shares and user accounts from the console?

    The Samba Howto on Samba's website is very complete.

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.

    Hi RedDragonAkai,

    You may want to take a look at this tutorial, or if you do not feel comfortable doing it in command line, install webmin. With webmin you can access that machine from another computer that has a browser (does not matter on which OS) and configure samba using web-based gui interface.

    Hope this helps.

    Edit: You can use wget to download webmin while working in a command line mode:
    Code:
    wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin-1.260.tar.gz
