Quick question, I am using a samba share to external drive
I have created two users
they have been added as members of seriohome group as (adm,users,seriohome)
I configured Saba as:
Share name: seriodrive
Share Directory: /media/hd
As it stands now if I get on my wifes laptop open Run type \\192.168.1.100\ it opens then I click seriodrive which actually lets me in now, but I cannot create directories or copy files to this. I am certain it is a permissions deal.
I think the problem is with the directory, I have a feeling i can't share out an entire harddrive like windows platforms, but If i go into the directory manually I cannot create a new folder in there like 'Shares' or something and edit the permissions. Any help would be appriciated.
As root or Sudo, the device (/dev/sdb1) has a mount point of /media/hd, if this is correct;
create a new directory, change the permissions and ensure your users have access.
# cd /media/hd
# mkdir public
# chmod 1775 public (Check man pages on chmod before setting permissions)
You should now be ready to go.
Using the mandriva control centre, go to the mount point tab & follow the prompts in sharing a partition - directory.
I hope this is of help.
