Hi Rowland,

Thank you for your reply. The process to setup file and printer shares
using samba and winbind from Linux to Linux and Linux to windows is same or
is there a difference in configuring the same. Please send documentation
link if possible.

I was reading this link -

Is it applicable for both Linux to Linux and Linux to windows ?
