    Samba Problem


    Hi,

    I just setup Samba on my Slackware server for file sharing only. I can see the share and access it with my Windows computer but for some reason I don't have write permission. When I setup the share definition in smb.conf, I made sure that "writeable = yes" so I'm not sure why I'm only getting read access.

    Any ideas??
    Thanks

    chmod the directory to 777

    as root do "chmod 777 <share_directory>"
