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!

All features:

- For every dynamic DNS updater set the name, timeout (in minutes), hostname, username, password and whether to update with the local or public IP address, start the Dynamic DNS Updater when connected to a specific WIFI network, update on connectivity change, start on boot

Pretty Good The interface is not trivial, but the app does its job very well.

Uninstalling With root/supersu this app dies if I deny superuser access to it.

Useless software, complete waste of time I'm a programmer, not a *nix programmer, but a programmer nonetheless, and was unable to figure out how to get this app to work so that I can access the SMB share from a Windows PC (my phone is rooted, BTW). I was trying, for about 20 minutes, to get the thing to work, and/or to find any documentation on how that can be done, and came up with nothing on both accounts. So I just uninstalled the app, and installed instead funkyFresh's "Samba Filesharing" - and within literally a minute, I was accessing the phone's internal memory from a Windows PC. So - for me this app was quite simply a complete waste of time.
