Hey people, back after a year of absence -.-‘ …. sorry about that…. Uni started….. visa problems…… exam issues blah blah blah blah blah….

Anyways……. Lets get started!  Sharing files between Windows and Linux! This for the amateur IT guy/girl can seem a daunting task, specially given the fact of about different partitioning methods, different file systems etc..

Trust me, there’s no shame in admitting that you just couldn’t find a way to make Windows and Linux play nice with each other over the network.. BUT! when you seriously look at it, it’s no that big of a problem..The main cause behind all this mayhem is rather simple…  We’ll call it the “language”. You see, windows computers talk to each other in a different language for file sharing and linux computer’s talk in a different language.  Dont worry though, all is not lost, you see, linux box’s have a secret trick up their sleeves, if you ask a linux box really nicely, they’ll learn how to speak in WINDOWS!

Ok ok, all the crappy synonyms aside, all you really need for file sharing between linux boxes and window’s boxes is a software called “samba”, and no, it’s not something like VLC where you have to install programs on both ends. Samba is actually a “daemon”, daemons are like windows background services, what it does is, it acts kinda like a interpreter in between the 2 machines ( i think lol ! ).

Ok , lets get to work!

I went and checked in linux, there was no “Share” button in the folder properties pane.

So After doing a bit of reading i came to understand that in order to share files between Windows and Linux Computers you have to install a Program(deamon) called samba!

It’s actually quite easy ! so lets get started!
