Making A File Server
What you need:
- Raspberry Pi with internet connection
Firstly, install Samba with this command in the Terminal:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin
Next, we need to make a shareable folder.
sudo mkdir -m 1777 /share
Now that we’ve made this new folder, we need to configure it!
sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
Add this to the bottom:
[share] Comment = Pi shared folder Path = /share Browseable = yes Writeable = Yes only guest = no create mask = 0777 directory mask = 0777 Public = yes Guest ok = yes
Now we need to add users to it:
sudo smbpasswd -a pi
Enter your new password.
Finally, restart the server system with this command:
sudo systemctl restart smbd
Now run this command to find your IP address:
You can now commander to the server. If your IP was 188.8.131.52 the server to connect to would be smb://184.108.40.206
