Configuring Samba on Linux

In order to allow Windows clients to access the database's directories remotely, they must be shared by the server using the Samba protocol.

Samba may not be installed by default on your machine. You can install it using your distribution's package manager, then enable it as a daemon and configure it to share your database files.

NOTE: The following commands require elevated privileges. To executed them successfully, you must either be logged in as a user with root privileges, or precede each command with sudo.
