    Samba config question

    I want to setup a share (on Fedora 8 ) that everyone can read from and with a user (shaker) that has read/write access. How do I do this? I never get write access when I connect as a user

    Here's the setup I tried:

    path = /srv/samba/test
    browseable = yes
    public = yes
    write list = shaker

    I made the "test" dir with su and did "chown shaker:shaker test".

    You need to ensure that both the samba permissions, as specified in your smb.conf (as you put above) are right and your unix permissions for the directory are right.

    Remember you cannot impose read-write protections properly unless your users are logging on correctly in windows (i.e. with a username/password).
