It’s a great news for the iOS users. Now you can share file with windows users. We all know Samba is a popular file sharing protocol for Linux/UNIX to share file with Windows terminal. It’s available for iOS. You can access your iDevice files over a Wi-Fi network from Windows terminal.

Samba is a sharing protocol known as SMB which are used to access files on Windows from Linux/UNIX terminal or vice versa. It has been implemented in iOS. The permission control is modified for SMB protocol for iOS. iOS users can read the files which are shared on Windows & also write in the empty directories of the Windows terminal if access permission is enabled in those directories. It has been introduce for security purpose on Windows.

According to iClarified:

This is actually done to prevent accidental damage (it’s easy in Windows Explorer to move a directory from one place to the other by accident). If you want more control over the sharing I highly recommend reading about Samba and how to configure it to do what you want (the configuration file resides in /etc/samba/smb.conf).

Popular use cases:

● Going to your friends and using your iDevice as an portable storage device which works over WiFi without needing any file copying software on their Windows machine.
● Browsing your photos from your favorite photo viewer on your computer over WiFi.
● For the advanced users you can have full streaming access to your iDevice files from your computer.

You can download Samba from the BigBoss Cydia Repository. This port should was tested on iOS 3 and 4 (iOS 5 will be supported when it’s out).
