Samba is an SMB server for Windows workstations. Its first version dates back to 1992. It was written by Andrew Tridgell at Australian National University.

In Windows, the SMB protocol is used for file and printer sharing. Samba enables the use of a UNIX server to make these resources available to Windows clients, thus establishing compatibility between the two environments. Samba can also function as a domain controller on smaller networks.
The community is eagerly awaiting the release of Samba 4.0.
Samba is distributed under the GPL v3.

“ Avis pour Samba 4 : après un court test, Samba 4 permet de réellement faire un domaine Active Directory et donc, d'y intégré des clients Windows sans difficultés. L'installation cependant, demande un peu de recherches et de technique. ”
