Samba and VSFTPD - the same folder - how to configure ?

Hi Gurus,

I would like to configure an access to folder


for two services : Samba and VSFTPD

How to do it ? How to create folder rights that samba and ftp user will have an access (read/write/delete) to all directories in /fileserver.

My system is CentOS. I`m starting samba and vsftpd like a root (/etc/init.d/vsftpd start etc.)

Any transparent proxy ideas - prohibited.

I guess the vsftpd setup is like in your previous post

If so, for samba you can use in smb.conf:
path = /fileserver
public = yes
writable = yes
valid group = @users
