    Samba 3.020 file permission problems - cannot save to share from client

    workgroup = [removed]
    netbios name = [removed]
    wins support = Yes
    ldap ssl = no
    invalid users = [removed]
    valid users = @users
    write list = @users
    create mask = 0770
    force create mode = 0770
    directory mask = 0770
    force directory mode = 0770
    oplocks = No
    level2 oplocks = No

    path = /share/public
    force group = users
    read only = No
    directory mask = 0755
    directory security mask = 00
    force directory security mode = 0777


    I recieved "file permission errors" trying to save to share from XP client (MS WORD), and cannot write to share. Admittedly, i'm not the best and unix file permission values, can someone possibly tell me what i am doing wrong? I have a feeling that there is one bit somewhere that needs to be changed, but i have been stuck trying to read the seemingly contradictory man pages & all the google'd topics i can find. I'm stuck.

    Directory mask says '0755', which means read access, but no write access for users (drwxr-xr-x). Maybe that's the problem? Shouldn't it be 0775?
    Debian Jessie x86_64 & armhf :: LibreELEC is the solution for your Linux-based HTPC setups.
