Samba is an open source implementation of the file and printer sharing protocols used by Windows networks.
These are known as the Common Internet File System (CIFS) and Server Message Blocks (SMB). Samba can be used in a number of different ways. Examples include, integrating Unix/Linux servers into Windows networks or in enabling Linux servers to act as Active Directory domain controllers.
