The first thing that I have been having problem is that I can see my Linux computer, but when I double click it, appears an error message sayin that I donīt have permissions to see the contents of the machine.
Take a look at my smb.conf
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash)
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.

workgroup = pensadores
# server string = Pentium 2 200 Mhz
hosts allow = 192.168.100. 127.
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 50
guest account = nobody
security = user
comment = Home Directories
browseable = no
writable = no
comment = Temporary file space
path = /tmp
public = yes
writable = yes
browseable = yes
Ok so there is the config (I created the tmp folder just for a test). I figured if I can make this one work, then maybe I can create other folders and make them work too.
Four persons will be using samba (my familiy).
The project is that I will make an FTP server, because my dad and mother need to have some of their files on the net for them to get them from wherever they are. And secondly. I run the apache at home and both of them have websites (mother and father are teachers) so both of them would like to deliver some information and files for their students (FTP will be for particular use and HTTP will used for public use).
The thing is that I would like just to create some folders for them (without having to create users within linux). So letīs say the folders are created... How can they send their files to each folder without having to create linux user and passwords for each? Is there a way to enforce security as well. For example, only my father can see his folder, only my sister can see her folder, and so on?
Thanks in advance!!!
