Sharing a Samba File and Print Server Across Subnets, Part 2

Samba, Server, by suvi.

In Part 1
we set up a simple anonymous Samba file and printer server. Now we’re

be able to use this server. Our example network has three segments, as

|                     |                        |                 lan2                   lan3

For ease of discussion,

assortment of Windows and Linux clients. In this example there is no
domain controller, but only a peer network. We’ll get to Windows-type
