Use RaspberryPI as a file server

TurnToJPG -->

###Preparation Mount the partition automatically, add following lines into the /etc/fstab:

	/dev/sda3	/media/ntfs    	ntfs-3g    permissions,locale=en_US.utf8  	  0	  2

I decide to use samba to share the files, so I have to install samba

	apt-get install samba

The samba server will start automatically, but we have to configure it to adapte to our situation.
Add the configuration to the samba config file:

	   comment = raspberry PI Share
	   path = /media/ntfs
	   valid users = Trusty
	   public = no
	   writable = yes
	   printable = no
	   create mask = 0765

Restart the samba server

	/etc/init.d/samba restart

For using smbpasswd, you have to install samba-common-bin:

	apt-get install samba-common-bin

Add some users to the samba sharing:

	smbpasswd -a xxx

###Mount the shared partition in client List all of the available samba shared items:

	$ smbclient -L -U%

Then we can mount it, I add following command into the .bashrc, so everytime I enter ‘mountraspsamba’ is ok

	alias mountraspsamba='sudo mount -t cifs // -o user=xxxx,password=XXXX,workgroup=WORKGROUP /media/raspsamba'
