samba (SMB file and print server)
Samba is an SMB file and print server for SMB and CIFS clients. It allows you to make file space or printers on a Samba host available to any PCs running SMB clients (such as PCs running Windows).
If you have any SMB servers (such as Windows NT/2K Server), you may be able to replace them by or supplement them with Samba. One of Samba's big strengths is integration, so you can use it to tie together your Linux hosts and Windows PC clients.
