Samba TNG is another SMB server for Unix-like operating systems. This software is concentrating on MSRPC interoperatability with Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 2003.

It provides PDC support and tools to remotely administer NT servers and workstations. Note that Samba TNG is currently in a beta stage. If you need advanced file/print serving capabilities, you should opt for Samba classic.

What's New in This Release:
As with release 0.4, we highly recommend a working iconv library.
Iconv is bundled with some C libraries - notably GNU libc - and shipped with almost all
Linux systems, and some Unix systems.
If your system does not have an iconv library, or (like Solaris) only has a limited one, we highly recommend installing the GNU libiconv, which you can find at .
Samba-TNG will still compile and run with its own iconv stubs, but this probably will not handle international character sets well, if at all.
