samba folder share user permission


Hi guy I want to make a local site fulfilling :

1)Samba folder share to windows client
2)User must login have access to their folder on web browsers
3)Virus must not affect shared folder
4)User have access to their folder only

I know to set up samba server but I don't know how to allocate to each user with permission on the web browser.

I don't want to map the drives as map drives get infected with virus.

Any Ideas how to accomplish this ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Kumar,

Here are my suggestions :

1) Give permission to others for Samba folder, hence it will be accessible via Windows Clients. Anyways, any user can see the shared data, but they can't edit unless full directory permission are given before sharing with Samba.
2) Create a user and add it to Samba User. Link User details with folder permission, such that specific User should have permission on specific folder only. Permissions are not browser specific.
3) Assuming site is hosted on Ubuntu/Linux flavour, so virus should not be a concern
4) Again, specific User should have permission on specific folder only

Essentially, permission are not browser specific. It can be set for User or the folder/files.
We agree that mapping the drives increases the chances for virus attack. Maybe you can script a quick any new file load scan over Windows platform (just an idea here...!!!)

I was thinking of some cloud type solution in which user can access data(folders) on browsers ?
Is it possible?

Still as possible now as it was last year, when you asked essentially the same question:
