File Server - Simple Network Attached Storage
An easy to use file server that combines Windows-compatible network file sharing with a web based file manager. TurnKey File Server includes support for SMB, SFTP, NFS, WebDAV and rsync file transfer protocols. The server is configured to allow server users to manage files in private or public storage. Based on Samba and SambaDAV.
This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:
SSL support out of the box.
Webmin module for configuring Samba.
Includes popular compression support (zip, rar, bz2).
Includes flip to convert text file endings between UNIX and DOS formats.
WebDAV CGI providing WebUI and WebDAV access.
File server (Samba) configurations:
Preconfigured wordgroup: WORKGROUP
Preconfigured netbios name: FILESERVER
Configured root as administrative samba user.
- Users home directory.
- Public storage.
- CD-ROM with automount and umount hooks (/media/cdrom).
NOTE: Due to the removal of libpam-smbpass (see issue #1188), new Samba users must have their passwords explictly set separately when created. However, if you create a Samba user using smbpasswd, then a new Linux user of the same name, with the same password is automatically created (including home directory). E.g.:
# smbpasswd -a new_user New SMB password: Retype new SMB password: Added user new_user. # ls /home/ new_user
Access your files securely from anywhere via WebDAV CGI:
- web GUI access to your files, with online previews of major formats and drag-n-drop support.
- Pre-configured authentication (Samba).
- Pre-configured repositories (storage, user home directories).
Default storage: /srv/storage

smbclient //126.96.36.199/storage -Uroot mount -t cifs //188.8.131.52/storage /mnt -o username=root,password=PASSWORD
Credentials (passwords set at first boot)
