Check, Linus workstations are installed with smbclinet, libsmbclient, smbfs.

Which are the packages to be a Samba Workstation...

rrrr???? Possibly did you mean that the samba server package is the one with listeners to receive the incoming WinPopup messages?

If so, sigh, then how much of the smb.conf needs to be populated? Does anyone have a minimal smb.conf that is **just enough** to receive WinPopup messages?

Like I assume everything related to nmbd can be skipped, and that process does not even need to be running, etc...
