Samba is an implementation of the SMB/CIFS protocol for Unix systems,
providing support for cross-platform file and printer sharing with
Microsoft Windows, OS X, and other Unix systems.  Samba can also function
as an NT4-style domain controller, and can integrate with both NT4 domains
and Active Directory realms as a member server.
This package provides the components necessary to use Samba as a
stand-alone file and print server.  For use in an NT4 domain or Active
Directory realm, you will also need the winbind package.
This package is not required for connecting to existing SMB/CIFS servers
(see smbclient) or for mounting remote filesystems (see cifs-utils).
