hi,

check out the file permisions of the folder, set it to 777 it should work for you, also make sure you have added the users to the SMB

check your smb.conf file if the share folder has write permissions

just to isolate the problem, can u try by disabling firewall+ SELINUX? Once I ran into a wierd problem with samba and the problem was with the firewall.

Just my 2 cents

Thumbs up

The Firewall is disable and the problem still continue...

But I've alredy solve de problem, I've reconfigured de smb.conf and create a new unix user and a new samba user both of them have the same name and the same password. I also create a new share and the problem was solved.

Thanks for everything...
