Helps you gain access to print and file services

Samba delivers file and print services for different Microsoft Windows clients and it is capable to integrate with a Windows Server domain as a Primary Domain Controllers or as a domain member. The name comes from SMB, short for Server Message Block, the standard protocol used by the Microsoft Windows network file system.
