Samba =sharing home directories


Is there a way to share all home directories on a linux box using one entry in the smb.conf file instead of copying and pasting the same share entry and changing the path to reflect the users home directory? I have about 100 home directories to share. Thanks in advance.

im assumning you dont want each user to have access to all users directories.

if so

[homes]

read only = No
browseable = No

make sure the user local machine has the same password as the smbpasswd file.
