    Samba configuring Fedora


    Hello all. I need your help.
    I have some folder that I want to share with several computers. One of them should have full access to this folder (read and write). This folder should not be even visible for other computers
    What should I paste to smb.conf ?
    Thanks for helping
    Sorry for my bad English

    is it computer-specific or user-specific? if it is user-specific, then you just need something like this in smb.conf:
    Code:
    [data]
            comment = shared_data
            path = /data/
            browseable = yes
            writable = yes
            valid users = some_user
    then add that user to that system, e.g.:
    Code:
    smbpasswd -a some_user
    also, make sure that user has system-level permissions on that dir, e.g.:

    Code:
    chown some_user /data
    if it is computer-specific access, look at the hosts allow and hosts deny paramters in smb.conf.
