How do you create Samba Share in a VMware/Linux (RedHat environment)?
Posted on 2008-11-11
Hi all (efg-uae are you there?),
I wanted to ask this follow up question outside of an earlier thread because it deserves additional points. So now, how do you create this Samba Share thing in a VMware/Linux environment? The name suggest it is a method of sharing resources between linux and other operating systems? I have no clue how to set that up...can you show step by step how to do this?
Speaking of ftp from VM/linux, I am not familiar with doing that from a linux box. What do I need to be able to do ftp from linux? How do I start FTP server in Linux machine so that I can ftp from or to any given target folder?
Finally, what do I do to make a windows folder sharable to a linux machine?
I will appreciate it if all the questions are answered but it is not a must. Points will be earned based on provision of stepwise HOW-TO (do it) responses. This is a VMware/RedHat linux machine on a MS Vista 64 physical.
Again guys and gals, thank you immensely!
