Samba share with Squid whitelist
I have a Linux appliance on my network with a Squid whitelist. I'd like users to be able to easily be able to add sites to that whitelist.
So I put the list in /var/flexshare/shares/ directory with public access and Read/Write permissions. Then I thought the proper user could simply go to that file on the network, add the sites, and be done. (I know you need to restart Squid...)
But it seems that Squid locks the file so that the user can't edit the file over the network, but I can edit it using WinSCP. I also can edit the file over the network if it's place in the /home/shared folder. I'd prefer not to store the file there, however. Anyone able to explain why the file seems to be locked when placed in the /var/flexshare/shares/ directory, but not in the home/shared/ directory?
In both directories, I can read/write other files just fine.
