Install Samba 4.0.18 in Ubuntu 14.04

In this article we’ll see how to Install Samba 4.0.18 in Ubuntu 14.04

Samba is an implementation of the Server Message Block (SMB)/Common Internet File System (CIFS) protocol for Unix systems, providing support for cross-platform file and printer sharing with Microsoft Windows, OS X, and other Unix systems

Samba can be used to:

  • Act as a server for SMB clients: share folders and printers, including PDF pseudo-printers so all the computers in your network may write PDF files
  • Act as a domain controller in a Windows network (authenticating users, etc.)
  • Do some more complex things, such as using a Windows domain controller to authenticate the users of a Linux/UNIX machine
