Struggling With Smb.conf
I have a fedora core 5 box and i'm setting up samba so users can store their own files either public or private.
here is a lil architecture i would like to have:
Linux Server (everyone can view the folders, but needs to authenticate for some)
+----[Public] - everyone can view, guests also
+----[Private] - Asks for authentication, and goes to the appropriate user folder (e.g /private/flx) with /private/%U. Example: if i login with the user "test01" the Private folder will use /private/test01/
the problem is with [Private] and the fact it already asks for authentication when i approach the server (\\server).
I cant view any of the folders before authenticating
Here is my config:
Anyway, i know that its also possible in windows.
Here is another illustration.
If security = share i can view the folder index and the insides of the Public folder.
But as soon as i want to enter the Private folder i get this:
The problem here is that the user field is greyed out!
When i put security = user i can't view the index folders nor the inside of the Public folder because it already asks for permission.
Can someone help me with the config?
Thanks in advance.
I think you need to set the guest user.. in debian it is nobody..but that is set in global..I will send you my smb.conf when I get home i have a similar setup...and security should be set to user
