    Samba Confusion


    Hi All

    Still new to Linux and especaily samba. I have setup samba for 2 shares,will list below shares. 1 which requires a login and 1 temp folder which I would like guest access to.

    Currently I have security = user which works great for the data folder which requires a login. If I try to access temp I get asked for a user name and password as well.

    I tried to set security = share which then allowed access to temp with out a login but also allowed access to the data folder. From the data folder I emoved public = yes. I then get askd for a user name and passwrod like I should but the system will not accept it.

    This is a Centos 5.5 server with a mail server on it. Any help you be great

    Had to change path as forum having a fit about url's

    data
    comment = Data Folder
    path = home
    public = yes
    writable = yes
    browseable = yes
    printable = no
    avaliable = yes
    write list = glenn,
    force create mode = 0660
    force directory mode = 0770

    temp
    comment = temp folder
    path = temp
    public = yes
    writeable = yes
    browseable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    guest only = yes
    guest account = nobody
    available = yes
    force user = nobody
    force group = nobody


    Thanks Glenn

    I'd suggest keeping it simple at first, then add your options until you get what you want. Make sure all directories have correct permissions too.
    Code:
    # We create a new share that we can read/write to from anywhere
    # This is kind of like a public temp share, anyone can do what
    # they want here.
    [public]
    comment = Public Files
    create mask = 0766
    path = /home/samba/public
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
