Install Samba on CentOS 7

Install Samba

sudo yum install samba samba-client

Once the installation is completed, start the Samba services and enable them to start automatically on system boot:

sudo systemctl start smb.service
sudo systemctl start nmb.service
sudo systemctl enable smb.service
sudo systemctl enable nmb.service

The smbd service provides file sharing and printing services and listens on TCP ports 139 and 445. The nmbd service provides NetBIOS over IP naming services to clients and listens on UDP port 137.
