How2 disable access to windows shares.


How2 disable access to windows shares.

I have just installed blag 50000 and also RH Fedora Core5,
and they both run really nice and smooth on the Amd ATh64 3700+ cpu's pc's...
These two pc's are not supposed to be able to browse the other windows shares on my
local LAN. Preferred option wanted based on who logs in or for all users, both
options will be fine in my study...
In other words:
I can "see" all the ms windows shares
on my LAN. Great, but in my setup I actually want the user by name
xxx not to be able to "see" and browse these shares...
An easy way to do this ?

Another ok option for me: just disable access to windows shares
for all users. This will be ok too in my case...
The easiest solution will do...


Thanks,
holeg

Create a group and when you add windows shares make sure that the owner is root, and the group is the new group you created.

Then the people who should have access can be members of this group, anyone else shouldn't be able to get in.

After installing newer distroes like Fedora C5 and BLAG50000,
Windows shares are available to all users by default, ie after a clean install.
In other words, creating another new group results in that the members of this one also by default gets access to the
windows shares on my Windows/Linux LAN network.
My Question is how to disable this feature.
In older version og i.e knoppix3.9 there is no default access after a clean install. Howevere in Knoppix 5 there is ( Knoppi here used as an as another ill. example). I suppose the new KDE versions support the windows shares access by default or is it the updated kernel ?
How do I disable this connection ?
