Now that were on a roll...
Lets pull up SWAT using port 901
http://localhost:901



I use root credientials here as this utility will edit the Samba configuration file
/etc/samba/smb.conf

Now we see SWAT, a very cleaver tool and preferred way of configuring Samba.
Each icon block represent a different section of the config file while also giving
us the status and view.

Now, just like before, we configure Globals






Now we configure the Share



A few minor settings and were ready to bounce the server and test it out.

Looks Good...

The "Linuxserver" is my normal existing file server and
"Samba_server" is the new setup.








I'm only displaying the "Basic" config, but if you click on "Advanced"
you will see much more info (in the SWAT interface).
I find, that the defaults are good and very little editing is needed
(for my situation), but this is a very powerful tool allowing you to control
every aspect of user access.

I would suggest installing Samba on a Linuxbox, and using SWAT to configure it.
You could spend days messing around with settings and seeing what effect it has on your setup.
