In the first part of this article, I introduced you to Samba, the open-source software suite that makes it possible to transparently share files on a network composed of both Windows and *NIX clients using the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol. I showed you to how to install and configure Samba, and also demonstrated the most common examples of its usage in a small- or medium-sized office network.

In this concluding part, I'll be spending some time on the ancillary utilities that are included with the Samba package, showing you how they can be used to connect to other SMB clients, mount SMB file systems, perform backups of user data, and manage common administrative tasks using a Web-based tool. All that and more, inside - so keep reading!
