how to properly share a file on linux box with a windows machine in AD?
 
I know this should be easy but I'm having a problem figuring it out.

I have a linux (Ubuntu server 8) that is busy collecting data files
for me, but I need to see them on a windows machine. The winXP
computer is in an AD domain.

The ubuntu server is running Samba and I believe I have set up
sharing - I can see/list the files on winXP. however, when I try to
open the files to read ( in this case by Wireshark ) I get a
permissions denial.

Where and how can I set those permissions? Any clues appreciated.
Thanks.

Hmm how about doing

Code:

chmod -R a+r foldername
on the folder containing the files on your Linux system? This should make all of them readable... at least in the local context.
