You don't need samba if all you want to do is copy files from FreeBSD to
a Windows system. The easiest way to do it is to mount an existing
Windows share, on FreeBSD. This will give you access to the Windows
share, but nothing is shared out on your FreeBSD box.
Let's assume you have a non-protected share (called MYSHARE) on a
Windows server called FRED. Let's also assume you have prepared a mount
point on FreeBSD for this share, called /mnt/fred.
All you need to do is:
$ mount -t smbfs //FRED/MYSHARE /mnt/fred
If you need to specify a username/password combo to access the share, try:
$ mount -t smbfs //[EMAIL PROTECTED]/MYSHARE /mnt/fred
You will need to input a password, but if you want to save the password
so it's used automatically, use /etc/nsmb.conf (see the man page), but
here's an example.
The hashed password was created by using 'smbutil crypt' and inputting
the real password (see the man page).
Obviously you need to make sure the permissions on /etc/nsmb.conf are
If you want it to automount at startup, then /etc/fstab could contain:
//[EMAIL PROTECTED]/MYSHARE /mnt/fred smbfs rw 0 0
