NAME
       samba - A Windows AD and	SMB/CIFS fileserver for	UNIX

SYNOPSIS
       samba

DESCRIPTION
       The Samba software suite	is a collection	of programs that implements
       the Server Message Block	(commonly abbreviated as SMB) protocol for
       UNIX systems and	provides Active	Directory services. The	first version
       of the SMB protocol is sometimes	also referred to as the	Common
       Internet	File System (CIFS). For	a more thorough	description, see
       http://www.ubiqx.org/cifs/. Samba also implements the NetBIOS protocol
       in nmbd.

	   and print services to SMB clients. The configuration	file for this
	   daemon is described in smb.conf(5).

       smbd(8)
	   The smbd daemon provides the	file and print services	to SMB
	   clients. The	configuration file for this daemon is described	in

COMPONENTS
       The Samba suite is made up of several components. Each component	is
       described in a separate manual page. It is strongly recommended that
       you read	the documentation that comes with Samba	and the	manual pages
       of those	components that	you use. If the	manual pages and documents
       aren't clear enough then	please visit https://devel.samba.org for
       information on how to file a bug	report or submit a patch.

       If you require help, visit the Samba webpage at https://www.samba.org/
       and explore the many option available to	you.

AVAILABILITY
       The Samba software suite	is licensed under the GNU Public License(GPL).
       A copy of that license should have come with the	package	in the file
       COPYING.	You are	encouraged to distribute copies	of the Samba suite,
       but please obey the terms of this license.

       The latest version of the Samba suite can be obtained from
       https://download.samba.org/pub/samba/.

       The Samba Wiki at https://wiki.samba.org	has also a lot of useful
       information. On the Samba mailing list at https://lists.samba.org you
       can find	a lot of information in	the archives and you can subscribe to
       the samba list and ask for help or discuss things.

VERSION
       This man	page is	part of	version	4.11.11	of the Samba suite.

CONTRIBUTIONS
       If you wish to contribute to the	Samba project, then I suggest you join
       the Samba mailing list at https://lists.samba.org.

       If you have patches to submit, visit https://devel.samba.org/ for
       information on how to do	it properly. We	prefer patches in git
       format-patch format.

CONTRIBUTORS
       Contributors to the project are now too numerous	to mention here	but
       all deserve the thanks of all Samba users. To see a full	list, look at
       the change-log in the source package for	the pre-CVS changes and	at
       https://git.samba.org/ for the contributors to Samba post-GIT. GIT is
       the Open	Source source code control system used by the Samba Team to
       develop Samba. The project would	have been unmanageable without it.

AUTHOR
       The original Samba software and related utilities were created by
       Andrew Tridgell.	Samba is now developed by the Samba Team as an Open
       Source project similar to the way the Linux kernel is developed.
