Can't set guest read/write samba share
I try to set up a samba share, like this:
I want the WebTemp share to be fully read/writeable to guests, but somehow it asks for user/password for every access. Why? As you can see above, I've tried a lots of parameters, but none work. The "stor" dir is also chowned by sambashare...
What are the system permissions on /home/server/www/tmp/stor?
I have mine set as below and complete access is granted. It looks deceptively simple.
path = /home/username/media/Music
public = yes
only guest = yes
writable = yes
printable = no
I know it should be simple, that's why I don't understand why it asks for login...
I've added the "only guest" line to the share, but still asks for pass.
Here are the permissions to the folder: http://borz.ath.cx/img/data/screenshot697.jpg
Some more ideas:
I have guest account commented out and the following in /etc/passwd:
Also, I have security=share instead of user.
My permissions on the actual folders are read, write, execute for everybody.
This is not a very secure setup, but it does allow the access you are looking for on my system. I use the hosts allow on static ip's for some security.
Thanks, I also set security to share, it seems to be more straightforward than the user-based mode.
The problem seemed to be with the folder that was located inside the www folder. No matter the permissions, somehow access was not granted. I "ln -s"-ed it to a folder in the system, and now it can be accessed as it set in Samba.
