windows ,smb and other OS sharing (cont’d)

I forgot to update on the recovering data that in the first place make me stop streak wrote on the articles. I miserly recover only 10% of whole intended data: sadly, alternatively send that storage to lab and recovering may be last resource, and in the same time financial decision for whom may concern. So back up may be the best of whole alternative.

back to the topic story, what I show relate on webmin config, if you want command line alternative route the way be here, windows access to SMB share, macOS access to SMB share, android access to SMB share. and that’s all for SMB server share.

the port for webmin default as secure port 10000, and in this articles my server is “nas”.

to begin install samba, you have two option install from start at ubuntu install, secondly in webmin, you can install by select at un-used modules.

sadly, already need use of samba share so already install from start, so next is how to configure this

after you install samba, restart webmin, restart samba services (it is easier to restart the system, but in some cases you already have something very vital, just restart services related may better)

samba configuring will show in servers tab.
you can see all option of configuration, if you want to configuring in command line “Edit Config File” always the good alternative.

before doing anything samba users needed to create. go to Samba Users menu.

you can convert linux users to samba users, but remember to change samba users password. samba user that was convert from linux users has no define password. so if you didn’t change password you will got no eligible password.

remember that from windows 10 / macOS 10.10 up use SMB2 and SMB3 and default disable SMB1.

for NAS access via Windows you can use via “\\”.

this is access via “\\nas”

for MacOSX

via Finder click Go
Connect to Server
type server name. here as nas
you will ask for password

after type the folder will show like this

for Andriod

you can use File manager

on the remote menu you will see SMB
type IP address or name
