Sun Solaris 10 - Samba Installation and Setup


This tutorial will walk you through a basic samba install and setup. You should further go through and setup security measures to ensure your server is secure and safe from attacks. We will be using a very basic samba configuration file for the purposes of this tutorial.

This tutorial assumes you have already installed pkg-get and have your mirror set to blastwave. If not, please check my other tutorial about how to set this up. We will not be downloading the source code and compiling in this tutorial.

Let’s open up our terminal and dive in!
