have been googling this for quit a while but can't find a suitable answer, so i need some help from you guys!
i have set up a samba file server to a dozen windows clients.
added users to my server, added the smbpasswd and voila! everything working properly
except that all the read-write permissions were set to root, cause i copied everything from the old server, not a problem and easily solved with "chmod -R 770 /home" and all files are read-write for all users.
but then....everytime that "user A" creates a new file, it is read only to "user B"
this is where i get stuck cause i need all the files and shares to be read-write for all users.
have already tried:
umask 770 /home
chmod -R 1770 /home
to my samba.conf i added:
create mask = 0770
write list = @group
it might be that i;m overlooking something simple and getting slightly tired here cause i need to have this done before sunrise.
so if anybody could point me in the "write" direction !!!!
