Configure Samba

| | Comments (0)
In order to work effectively from a windows pc a samba share on the ps3 is very handy. First make sure samba is installed.
rpm -q smb-client
If not install samba.
yum -y install samba
When samba is installed edit the configuration file.
nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
Change the following settings:
workgroup = WORKGROUPNAME
security = share
[tmp]
   comment = Temporary file space
   path = /tmp
   read only = no
   public = yes
[andreas]
   comment = andreas's home
   path = /home/andreas
   public = yes
   writable = yes
Start the samba server.
sudo /etc/init.d/smb start
Now you need to add a user, you'll be asked to provide a samba password for the user. Remember the user has to be a user on the machine.
smbpasswd -a username
After you've added a user you need to restart the server in order to reflect changes.
/etc/init.d/smb restart
At this time it's a good choice to make sure samba will be started every time you start your system. Add smb to both runlevel 3 and 5.
/sbin/chkconfig --level 35 smb on
Then you can verify it's on by issuing the follwing command.
/sbin/chkconfig --list smb
Enjoy!
