    Exclamation Samba


    Hi i have been giving a task at work and im a little stuck . I have been asked to setup a samba file server that can just easily connect to 12 windows workstations. The 12 machines should all have a maped drive on them when they ar switched on witch is going to be a file on the server called main. I going to need to seprate shares on 2 of the machines as well .

    something like this


    john - Private Share + Main Share

    paul - Private Share + Main Share

    and for all the other computers i need just

    Main Share

    If any 1 could suggest a way of doing this i would be extremly greatfull.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking for, you want these shares on the linux file server? Or you want to access these shares which are on windows pc's with linux? Either way, you can start here:
    http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/quick-samba-howto.xml
    and:

    (possibly the 'add a gentoo server to a windows network')

    You could also check out the official Samba by Example guide.

    For the users who have a private + public share, make the share available for that user only with the valid users option in the shares section, e.g.
    [Paul's Share]
    path = /somewhere
    valid users = paul
    read only = no
    public = no

    [main share]
    path = /some_where_else
    read only = no
    browseable = yes
    public = yes
    hope this helps.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
