Debian Packages: samba swat

The swat package is a browser-based administration tool which many users find useful.

If using encrypted passwords (default) then need to add users using the password manager in swat or with the command line smbpasswd. New users are added with the -a option of the smbpasswd command. You may also need to set the encrypted password option in /etc/samba/smb.cnf:

     encrypt passwords = true

Note that the default installation provides access to user homes straight out of the box.
