Samba is an open source implementation of the server message block (SMB) and common internet file system (CIFS) protocols, it allows us to access Windows file share resources from Linux.
With Samba we can export specific directories within a file system over the network to other Windows or Linux clients, allowing us to share various files over the network between different operating systems.
It is important to configure this properly and secure it as much as possible so that only the required clients and users have access to the SMB/CIFS share, otherwise it may be possible for anyone to mount and access the data.
To do this we are going to use the /etc/samba/smb.conf file on the SMB/CIFS server and lock down shares to only be accessible by specific IP addresses and user accounts.
