Setting Up A Linux File Server Using Samba

Setting Up A Linux File Server Using Samba

I struggled for ages getting Samba to work reliably and made quite a few wrong turns on the way. I was just trying to set up a simple Linux file server to store music, photos etc. but eventually found a foolproof (probably) way to do it. The following works and has been tested several times on fresh installations. This is not meant to be a high security setup, all folders are accessible to everybody for read, write and delete. If you have stroppy teenagers who want exclusive access to their own area on the server, then you can use this as a starting point. A few simple changes would achieve that level of security but it is beyond the scope of this tutorial.

How To Set Up And Integrate An Ubuntu 10.04 LTSPv5 Server Into A Windows 2008 Active Directory Domain

With the current economic conditions, companies have been trying to do more with less by recycling old hardware and utilizing open source software. That's also true where I work. Between our call center, finance, distribution, warehouse, and sales departments over 50% of the company's employees are running on RHEL4 LTSP thin clients. Recently it was decided to update our LTSP environment from RHEL4 to Ubuntu 10.04 with LTSPv5. Using the following steps, I was able to setup and integrate an Ubuntu 10.04 LTSPv5 server into a Windows 2008 Active Directory domain.

Ubuntu 10.10 LAN Torrent Seedbox With Avalanche-rt, Lighttpd, Rtorrent, Vsftpd And Samba

Ubuntu 10.10 LAN Torrent Seedbox With Avalanche-rt, Lighttpd, Rtorrent, Vsftpd And Samba

This tutorial is based on a LAN setup, but it should also be applicable for an Internet seedbox (e.g. on a vps or rootds), but some additional steps may need to be performed (firewall, securing rpc-mount, generally hardening of the server). The best lightweight software combination for a seedbox is lighttpd with rtorrent/libtorrent and a nifty web interface. So we use avalanche-rt, an actively developed project which looks very promising.
