Replace SMB Server with open source version in Mac OS X Lion Server
Authored by: eduo on Sep 21, '12 03:24:46PM


I'm SMBUp's developer. I wish I had seen this thread before :)

A small clarification:

I made SMBUp to help people avoid having to install XCode and MacPorts, both of which I love but which are overkill for something like this. I kept waiting for someone to come up with a simple installer for Samba binaries (my money was on Liyanage, who'd made similar things in the past) but after a year I just gave up and made SMBUp.

SMBUp mainly does two things:
-Installs Samba
-Helps configure basic options for Samba

The Samba installation performed is *exactly* the same one made by macports, just right the instructions ubiquous on the internet explain. I made it this way so people that had installed it manually could still use the front-end.

So, for people who've installed MacPorts' version SMBUp should work as if it had installed Samba itself.
