Thank you very much for answering.

I would like something like a countdown that will logout all users out of samba after a time of inactivity.
If windows save the credentials, I really need a way to block that.
When I say access , I mean when someone is going into a folder to copy, modifiy...

Thanks.

The only way to get what you want is to log off each user (on the Win box) when they are finished their 'access'.

Tell your users to lock their stations.
Whatever I do, am getting stacked at this point......

For users who are having problem with Samba not working at startup, I propose 2 solutions.

1- Create a Batch file (file_name.sh) on the computer or host it on the net.
To give sudo access, use this:

http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl8_sudo.htm

sudo -V | -h | -l | -L | -v | -k | -K | -s | [ -H ] [-P ] [-S ] [ -b ] | [ -p prompt ] [ -c class|- ] [ -a auth_type ] [ -u username|#uid ] command

check the url to know how to write it.

The next line of your script will be:

sudo smbd restart

That is it any time you double click this, it will reboot samba for you.

2- The other way is to place the way to that script in the autostart and writing a delay script before the sudo command in proposition 1.

Well hope that may help you.

note: Just know that putting the sudo password in that file is dangerous. A way round is to create a special user for that purpose who will have the permission only to reboot samba.

This was implemented on Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 x86.
