Upon the Subject of Samba

After a bit of a break, next up for IT 566 was installing Samba. I installed and configured Samba between Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows XP using these directions.

Here’s a screenshot from the Ubuntu side of things.

I also mapped the share to a drive letter (U) on the Windows side by using “Tools” “Map Network Drive” in Windows Explorer.
