Hello. I am back asking for help. A while ago you guys helped me install Unbuntu on my old Computer (going great thanks) and now I got it a new HD and I would like to store my movies and music on it but be able to get them from pretty much any of my computers. It would also be nice if I could share some select files with one of my buddies through this system though he will not be connected through my lan. Is this an easy project? And is any kind soul willing to help me?
In a nutshell I want to make a file server / storage computer, please help.
If you do have sudoer rights, run a terminal and use sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf (I think that's the samba config), to edit the config file. When you want to save, exit nano with ctrl x and type yes, hit enter and done.
Hit me up with any other questions, I set up 3 different samba installs in the last 2 weeks.
