Hi

I need a SMB Server (Delphi Source Code) which i can install on a computer on a second IP-Adress. The first IP works as the standard Windows SMB, the second should work as my own SMB Server.
I would like to share only files, no printers ...

Would be very happy if anybody could help me.

SMB means "Server Message Block"
this is the protocol how two Windows system shares Files or printers ...
For Linux there is an open source SMB Server "Samba"

The problem with a SMB server is the one the Samba team is facing. Microsoft legalese.

The new SMB documentation of SMB from Microsoft references two patents and disallows Open Source implementations basing on that documentation.

The Samba team has no real problems with that because the reverse engineered the SMB protocol long ago, but they are obviously on the kill list of Microsoft.
