Samba Help


Hello,

Trying to setup a samba share with the following (samba 3.6.9)-

Allow only - user1,user2,user3,user4,user5
Write- user1,user2,user3
Read- user4,user5

Current perms are 775 for dir and files (unix)

Messing around with smb.conf it seems my understanding of the create mask,security mask etc is all wrong as I can't get the correct configuration..

Either I can't access or it works correctly in the linux world but then in samba user4 can write when I don't want them to.

Any help would be appreciated..

The most helpful Samba reference I have found is Samba by Example.

I don't think it's updated to Samba v. 4, but it should be able to help answer those questions.
