Samba Server

Samba Server


A free and complete Samba Server for your Android (SMB, CIFS)! Access your Android with ease, just like an USB stick (thumb drive / flash drive)

No root is needed!

Works on:
- Mac OS X: will show up on the finder automatically if on the same network
- Windows: only works if you have a rooted device since windows does not support non-standard SMB ports. Also, if you use Windows 7 you might need to find out how to enable it since the server only accepts guest logins and Windows 7 automatically uses the currently logged in user.
- Linux: only works if your device is rooted or you can specify the samba server port

Note. If you find a bug or have a problem please contact us by email since we cannot help you if you post it in the reviews.

**
In this version you can add one server (Samba Server or Dynamic DNS Updater) and three directories per server. If you want to be able to add unlimited items please buy Samba Server Pro. If you buy the pro version you will support development, will be able to add unlimited items and see no advertisements!

Not properly configurable No obvious facility to define username or password, and lack of standard port numbering is a real pain

No way to set share permissions. No way to set user/password. Didn't work after all: Mac sees it, but tells "connection failed".

Sloppy and complex Next time, just make it work like a normal SMB server. Macs do not pick up the random port address.

Causes Issues With Some Software It works if you mount the samba server yourself, specifying the IP and port, but it fights software that finds other samba servers fine (particularly pcmanfm on linux).
