a curious question, but i was asked to throw together a simple
example of installing and configuring samba on a network with no
windows systems -- just linux. in the simplest case, just two
linux machines sharing a directory or two.
it's easy enough to do, i guess -- since samba allows a linux box to
be both a SMB server and client. not sure of the practical value
because, if you know there are no non-linux systems involved, why
involve samba at all?
in any event, is there anything technically infeasible about that?
even if it's a bit weird? or do people actually use that scenario in
a practical way?
