Configuring Samba on OpenBSD 5.2
Configure Samba,
cd /etc/samba/
mv smb.conf smb.conf.dist
sed '/^#/d; /^;/d; /^$/d;' smb.conf.dist > smb.conf
vi smb.conf
  ==> change workgroup
  ==> disable load printers
  ==> remove the [homes] stanza
  ==> remove the [printers] stanza
add some additionall configuration options to the [global] stanza,
unix extensions = no
allow insecure wide links = no
printing = BSD
note. printing=bsd to avoid a recurrent error about CUPS in the logs... printcap name=/etc/printcap should work also.
and add a specific share like e.g.,
path = /data
valid users = USERNAME
writable = yes
printable = no
note. change USERNAME accordingly.
Make sure the USERNAME user exists and configure its Samba account,
smbpasswd -a USERNAME
Start and enable Samba at boot,
/etc/rc.d/samba start
cd /etc/
cat >> rc.conf.local <<EOF9
