Ubuntu Server: Cmd line Network Shared folder for Windows

 Got tired of using filezila to do everything so this morning I set things up with Samba to allow me to share. Just a few notes along with this video that I think might be helpful for other devs.


  • sudo apt-get install -y samba
  • sudo ufw allow 139
  • sudo ufw allow 445
  • sudo service smbd status
  • sudo vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
  • sudo chmod 777 shared_folder/

        # This share allows anonymous (guest) access
        # without authentication!
        path = /shared_folder
        read only = no
        guest ok = yes
        guest only = yes

I used the folder path at the root and probably will later add a user for security but for now I have what I need to get running. Doesnt seem as fast as filezilla but thats not a big deal.
