File Sharing & Printing Support

Post by tiger » Tue Nov 15, 2005 2:59 am

Will ReactOS support the MS File Sharing & Printing Service [NetBIOS]. Also, will there be a server version of ReactOS?

Ok I think you just miss it. I guess not a Linux/BSD/Unix user.

All non Linux/BSD/Unix users. This is Samba.

Samba does Netbois on TCP/IP.

Samba-TNG is a server for win32 machine. Still in development and a developer is working on reactos intergation.

Windows file and printer sharing via SAMBA-TNG

Post by Jaix » Wed Nov 16, 2005 11:08 pm

As oiaohm mentioned in his reply SAMBA is the Windows Networking file/printer sharing server & client to Linux/Unix this is an opensource effort to make Unix talk to Windows in it's own language, you can find it's project page here:
What is going to be done in a near future is that some guys will port this back to the Wintel (Windows x86) platform.

The ROS team has made contact with the SAMBA-TNG guys who has promised to help in this task. SAMBA-TNG is a free non dependent branch of the SAMBA organization. Tead more about them on this page:
