Replace SMB Server with open source version in Mac OS X Lion Server
Authored by: desepticon on Apr 03, '12 09:32:39PM

Would this work in regular (non-server) lion? I always have windows sharing issues. Im guessing it would work but I'm not sure why you specified this was a Lion Server specific hint.

wow, I missed 'server' in the title. Yes SMBUp will work on the nomad non-server Lion install, or it does or me.

Yes, this would work for regular Lion, not just the Server, but the steps to stop the Apple services would not be needed. It looks like SMBUp is a much better solution for doing all of this, and doesn't require XCode (maybe) and MacPorts installation (very time consuming). Wish I'd known of it beforehand, but glad I started the conversation.
