Samba Sharing entire Home Directory
 
Ok, I'm completely new when it comes to Samba and I'm trying to get it setup so I can share music and downloads between my wife's computer and mine. I'm running Ubuntu 5.04 and I installed Samba just fine and tried to use the Share Folder option that pops up in the menu when you right click on a folder to share my music folder. Well when she tried to access it, my computer showed up in the Network Neighborhood, but it required a password to access.

After some reading I found that I needed a separate password, so I ran smbpasswd -a for my username and supplied a password. Now when she tried to connect, she used that password and it let her in fine, but she had access to my entire home directory. She couldn't make any changes, but I would prefer if only selected folders were available in case I wanted to share them with other people. In my /etc/samba/smb.conf file I only have the mp3s folder set as shared. Could anyone help me with this?

This is my /etc/samba/smb.conf file:

Code:

#
# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
#
#
# 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 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 commentary 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 many any basic syntactic
# errors.
#

#======================= Global Settings =======================

[global]

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
  workgroup = WORKGROUP

# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
  server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
  wins support = yes

# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
;  wins server = w.x.y.z

# This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
  dns proxy = no

# What naming service and in what order should we use to resolve host names
# to IP addresses
;  name resolve order = lmhosts host wins bcast


#### Debugging/Accounting ####

# This tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
  log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m

# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
  max log size = 1000

# If you want Samba to only log through syslog then set the following
# parameter to 'yes'.
;  syslog only = no

# We want Samba to log a minimum amount of information to syslog. Everything
# should go to /var/log/samba/log.{smbd,nmbd} instead. If you want to log
# through syslog you should set the following parameter to something higher.
  syslog = 0

# Do something sensible when Samba crashes: mail the admin a backtrace
  panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d


####### Authentication #######

# "security = user" is always a good idea. This will require a Unix account
# in this server for every user accessing the server. See
# /usr/share/doc/samba-doc/htmldocs/ServerType.html in the samba-doc
# package for details.
  security = share

# You may wish to use password encryption.  See the section on
# 'encrypt passwords' in the smb.conf(5) manpage before enabling.
  encrypt passwords = true

# If you are using encrypted passwords, Samba will need to know what
# password database type you are using. 
  passdb backend = tdbsam guest

  obey pam restrictions = yes

  guest account = nobody
  invalid users = root

# This boolean parameter controls whether Samba attempts to sync the Unix
# password with the SMB password when the encrypted SMB password in the
# passdb is changed.
;  unix password sync = no

# For Unix password sync to work on a Debian GNU/Linux system, the following
# parameters must be set (thanks to Augustin Luton <aluton@hybrigenics.fr> for
# sending the correct chat script for the passwd program in Debian Potato).
  passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
  passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .

# This boolean controls whether PAM will be used for password changes
# when requested by an SMB client instead of the program listed in
# 'passwd program'. The default is 'no'.
;  pam password change = no


########## Printing ##########

# If you want to automatically load your printer list rather
# than setting them up individually then you'll need this
;  load printers = yes

# lpr(ng) printing. You may wish to override the location of the
# printcap file
;  printing = bsd
;  printcap name = /etc/printcap

# CUPS printing.  See also the cupsaddsmb(8) manpage in the
# cupsys-client package.
;  printing = cups
;  printcap name = cups

# When using [print$], root is implicitly a 'printer admin', but you can
# also give this right to other users to add drivers and set printer
# properties
;  printer admin = @ntadmin


######## File sharing ########

# Name mangling options
;  preserve case = yes
;  short preserve case = yes


############ Misc ############

# Using the following line enables you to customise your configuration
# on a per machine basis. The %m gets replaced with the netbios name
# of the machine that is connecting
;  include = /home/samba/etc/smb.conf.%m

# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See smb.conf(5) and /usr/share/doc/samba-doc/htmldocs/speed.html
# for details
# You may want to add the following on a Linux system:
#        SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
  socket options = TCP_NODELAY

# The following parameter is useful only if you have the linpopup package
# installed. The samba maintainer and the linpopup maintainer are
# working to ease installation and configuration of linpopup and samba.
;  message command = /bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/linpopup "%f" "%m" %s; rm %s' &

# Domain Master specifies Samba to be the Domain Master Browser. If this
# machine will be configured as a BDC (a secondary logon server), you
# must set this to 'no'; otherwise, the default behavior is recommended.
;  domain master = auto

# Some defaults for winbind (make sure you're not using the ranges
# for something else.)
;  idmap uid = 10000-20000
;  idmap gid = 10000-20000
;  template shell = /bin/bash

#======================= Share Definitions =======================

# The next two parameters show how to auto-mount a CD-ROM when the

Thanks in advance.

Ah, thanks.

I must have missed that in all the comments.
