File Server Component
The File Server component enables Plesk administrators to share directories on a network directly from the Plesk. Using the Plesk File Server, you can share access to a directory on your server, grant access to this directory to specific users or hosts, and assign read-only or write permissions for this directory. File Server uses the Microsoft SMB (Server Message Block) protocol to share resources on a Samba server for network users.
For the Plesk File Server, the Samba server (version 2.2.x or 3.x) must be installed and properly configured.
