Hi everyone, first time here.
I got a D-Link DNS-323, which is a network attached storage that runs some version of linux. With some mods, I am now able to telnet into it and change configuration for Samba, being more flexible than the web app it uses by default.
I have run into some problems regarding giving write access to a particular person. I have the following share in my smb.conf:
path = /mnt/HD_a2/Home/username
valid users = @Admin @PowerUsers username
write list = username
writeable = yes
guest ok = no
oplocks = yes
map archive = yes
It should give user username read/write access to the share, and read only access to users in groups Admin and PowerUsers. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be doing this. It's allowing everyone in those groups write access to the share. If I set it to read only = yes, then no one has write access to it. In Linux, the permissions are 777, which is what I'd expect since the restrictions would come from samba.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong, or is it a problem related to the DNS-323?
Thanks in advance,
