SMB is used by Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 95/98, Windows 2000 and Windows XP etc. to share hard drives and printers. As Unix (including Linux) can process this protocol with Samba Suite tools, hard drives and printers can be used along with Windows hosts. Consequently, items shared via SMB can be integrated into the thin client by Windows or Unix Samba hosts.
The SMB protocol is used only to share files via the network (not for printers). Shared items which are to be mounted must first be created on the Windows or Unix host.
Local directory: Details of the local directory onto which the shared items are to be mounted on the local thin client file system.
Server: For a Windows host, the Net BIOS name must be entered here. For a Unix Samba host, the host name or the IP address must be used.
Share path name: Path name as exported by the Windows or Unix Samba host.
User name/password: Details of the user name and password for your user account on the Windows or Unix Samba host.
Enabled: The SMB mount is enabled by default and is mounted each time the system boots.
Writable for users: If this option is enabled, the user who is logged on can write data. Otherwise, this is only possible via root.
