Can't get user logins and guest users to work at the same time on Samba
I've converted an old Xbox in to a Samba/NAS for my media centre (win 7) and laptop (OS X). I've installed SWAT as well to manage it.
I'm trying to get it setup so that there's a user which has access to my ~/ and a guest user which just has read access to ~/Media so that the Media centre can read all the files from it without having to login.
I think I've created the users ok and when the security type is set to USER I can login using my user name and password and access the Home Share which points to ~/ but I can't access the ~/Media share.
However when I reset the security type to SHARE (as I've read in this forum a few places). It allows me to login but every share says it's unable to access them (from both my laptop and media centre). But when I just login as a guest (no user/pass) I can access ~/Media
Really confusing, but I guess I'm probably missing something stupidly obvious? :confused:
