    Hi there i have a few issues with samba, hopefull a nice dude from here will help.
    I have debain installed and used the version of samba that came with apt get 2 days ago.
    I dont want the box to perfom any server functions yet just some basic file and printer stuff.

    (ive tried adding random socket options but none seem to help)
    heres my samba.conf

    [global]
    workgroup = uk
    domain master = no
    server string = st106349b
    log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
    max log size = 50
    socket options = TCP_NODELAY
    hosts allow = 10.80.2.
    keepalive = yes
    readonly = no
    security = share

    [all_usr_share]
    path = /home/allusr_shr
    guest = yes
    public = yes
    writeable = yes
    printable = no

    Even though samba has the dir set to writeable, etc... your local linux file permissions still have perceadence. Thus, you might want to create a local linux group, make all samba users, or those you wish to have access, members of that group, and give that group read/write/and Execute permissions to that folder like what is being done in the following examples (run as root, example group is allusr):
    Code:
    chgrp -R allusr /home/allusr_shr
    and
    Code:
    chown -R g+rwx /home/allusr_shr
