- Huh. In the beginning I tought all that is needed is packed to samba
packet, which is installed with 'apt-get install samba'. Your list contains
an unbelievable long list of packets and options I have seen no mention
anywhere. Now it seems that I got to rip the packet open and check it
thoroughly ?!?
The only thing I'm sure, I will not include, is this damned IPv6. 
It seems odd in my eyes, that you can set samba make the tasks we ask it
just editing the smb.conf file, if we set 'security = user', but checking
the passwords from an external server needs editing and installing so many
I'm not very enthusiastic to compile anything.

Got to go through this and check what is there already in the Ubuntu samba
deb packet :(

Do you mean by 'module' for example pam_krb5.so ?
I tought they are built in the deb packet 

Thank you.
It will take me a day to go through all that you recommend.
