Classic 68K Amiga SAMBA setup
SAMBA networking is very useful for Amiga computers, as it allows a fast and convenient way to transfer large files, games or software to your classic Commodore Amiga.
A standard Amiga computer is limited to 880K floppy disk capacity unless you have a CD-ROM drive or other means to transfer files (and burning lots of CDs can be time consuming and wasteful on media).
One option is a direct link via a serial or parallel cable from the Amiga to another PC, or even to use a telnet BBS service to upload and download files - these options can be slow and fiddly to implement.
With SAMBA however, transferring files to your Amiga is as easy as opening up a Drawer in Workbench and dragging them to your Hard DIsk Drive or Compact Flash card - and everything can be done directly on the Amiga without having to use UAE etc!
Basic Amiga 68K SAMBA setup steps
1. First add a Plipbox to your Amiga and have it setup with MiamiDX or similar TCP/IP stack so you have internet and Network connectivity available on the Amiga - see instructions and information here: Commodore Amiga Plipbox Ethernet Adapter
2. Using your newly setup Plipbox download the following files from here: Amiga 68K Samba files to your Amiga, or transfer them initially by other means you may already have.
You now should have these in a folder on your Amiga:
