In this Raspberry Pi Samba tutorial, we will be showing you how you can share directories from your Raspberry Pi using the SMB/CIFS protocols.

Connect to the Raspberry Pi via ssh

### my ssh user pi 
###default hostname raspberrypi.local
ssh pi@raspberrypi.local 

### you don't know ip?? find it with nmap  
###if your IP address is 192.168.1.XXX.
sudo nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24`

### you don't know hostname?  
###from raspberry shell
hostname -I 

Update the package list and all our packages

 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get upgrade

install the packages

sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin

create a folder that we will share.

### (my local raspberry path: /home/pi/sambashared)
mkdir /home/pi/sambashared

Edit the samba config file. Add the following to the bottom

sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

.....
[pisamba]
path = /home/pi/sambashared
writeable=Yes
create mask=0777
directory mask=0777
public=no.

“[pisamba]” – This defines the share itself, the text between the brackets is the point at which you will access the share. smb://raspberrypi.local/pisamba

“path” – the directory on your Raspberry Pi that you want to be shared.

“writeable” – it will allow the folder to be writable (Yes).

“create mask” and “directory mask” – Setting this to 0777 allows users to read, write, and execute for both files and folders.

“public” – If this is set to “no” the Pi will require a valid user to grant access to the shared folders. We can begin modifying the config file by running the command below.

Set up a user for our Samba server .In this example, we will be creating a Samba user called “pi”

  sudo smbpasswd -a pi
  ### restart service
  sudo systemctl restart smbd

Start/stop/status samba server

  sudo systemctl start smbd
  sudo systemctl stop smbd
  sudo systemctl status smbd
