Have you ever needed to run a command in background on Linux? Execute something that would stay there, no matter what, and that you would be free, without having to leave your machine logged with an open session? I needed that once, and I’ll share how to do it…
Some time ago, I’ve published a way to configure a sharing between Linux and Windows, without needing to authenticate. That model worked well with Debian 6, but with Debian 8, I had to change Samba configuration a little bit.
At home, I use a Windows on a desktop, that has a virtual machine with Debian 6 configured to be my web server (NGINX, MySQL, PHP).
I was tired of using FTP plugins to program with my text editors, so I thought “Why the hell not using a sharing between Linux and Windows?”. To do that I was going to need SAMBA, but how would I share without having to input user and password, since I’m on a VM and I’m the only one acessing because it’s inside my own desktop?
