    Vista permissions problems on Samba share


    I created a Samba share on my Ubuntu 8.10 desktop... I can see and read its contents from my Vista desktop, but I cannot write. I verified that smb.conf lists that share as having full read/write permissions, but it isn't working. What should I be looking for?

    Also, would my hard drive format matter in this case? (and how to check)

    Please check your Vista account has been created in your samba server of Ubuntu machine.
    If you have created account in Ubuntu system. Did you also use this command # smbpasswd -a username to add account before?
