    I have installed DD-WRT and it works great on my wrt54G v2.
    I'm just curious about the use of Samba ability offered by this firmware. What kind of service can I have with this feature ?
    A Linux server sharing files is installed on my LAN, please give me examples of uses I can apply !

    I've already found these information, but they are just technical.

    I was asking about the use of such a functionnality ?
    When samba is configured on my routeur :
    - can I access to datas from Internet by ftp for instance ?
    - can I install web services on the routeur to publish ,web pages ?
    - ... ?

    What is the use of samba connected datas on a wrt54G ?

    Thanks for your help.
