I am currently using samba as a file server only. But
due to security requirements at my company I have
modify the settings so that I maximize the best samba
"security solution" possible.
This System is in a NIS environment and obviously the
password server is not being used since
Here is my smb.conf file
Any Advice will be apreciated. Thank You
