What is Samba for Mac

Samba is the standard Windows interoperability suite of programs for Linux and Unix.

Samba is Free Software licensed under the GNU General Public License, the Samba project is a member of the Software Freedom Conservancy.

Since 1992, Samba has provided secure, stable and fast file and print services for all clients using the SMB/CIFS protocol, such as all versions of DOS and Windows, OS/2, Linux and many others.

Samba is an important component to seamlessly integrate Linux/Unix Servers and Desktops into Active Directory environments. It can function both as a domain controller or as a regular domain member.

So can this be used to upgrade the Apple SMB in 10.6 and before? If so, how? I volunteer for a group that refurbishes donated computers for benevolent causes in the third world and am not quite sure if this can be used to fix it or not. I looked at the developer site, but didn't find the answers. But it may be that I just didn't know where to look.

I have used SMS/Samba for many years. Apple SMB doesn't seem to correctly support SMB version 1 which is used on some Fuji and Kyocera printers with Copy/Scan to Share options. Tried Apple Server version but could not get it to work with the printers. Installed Samba, disabled Apple Server SMB, configured with just a simple single share, no print options etc. and it has been stable and fully operational. That particular share is currently available to all users in the building. Works well and reliably. I have added a couple of extra lines into the Apple startup sequence at the UNIX level for the share creation which doesn't affect anything else. I can recommend this software as stable and good stuff. Apple is lazy and is dumbing down a lot of networking software such as NFS, SMB and obviously AppleTalk. Sad. NFS won't work with Debian Linux NFS servers (.dot file issues) and so on. Samba solves at least the SMB problems.

What is the use of this? OSX has the SMB protocol default built in.

Sigh - I keep eyeing off these new releases and, despite the comment by Yappa a couple years ago, I *still* can't figure out how to install this. The amount of documentation associated with this Samba package is positively daunting and it clearly implies a high degree of unix command line geekery. Take a read of all of the reviews and comments posted here (which go back to 2004) - NOT ONE comment is by anybody who has successfully installed this on a Mac, and that in itself makes a sobering statement. If anybody out there has installed this I would greatly appreciate your feedback and, more importantly, any helpful instructions. Does an installation script exist?

The 3.5.10 cannot be complied on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion with the latest Xcode. I think this package should be removed from the Macupdate forever because it is no longer work anyway. Just make user to confuse it is a Mac package but actually it does no longer work.

Unlike the wonderful X11 project, this project does not have any prebuilt OS X installer. I went to the Samba website and there's no way your average (heck, even above average) Mac user will be able to get this up and running. Shame, I need to access stuff at work via Samba all the time and I definitely notice issues that presumably a better version would fix.

Can somebody please comment on how well this integrates with OS X (and Leopard in particular). This is software is not provided as a Mac binary but as a wad of source code. I have to use Samba at work, and there are several issues with either the Mac's shipping version of Samba or the way Samba works at my employer's site. I'm guessing the problem is on the Mac's side... On the Samba website, they have binaries for just about all platforms except for the Mac :-(.
