samba permissions Issues
Hey all, I am running Ubuntu Server 8.10, and trying to setup a samba box. I have samba configured so that the proper folders are shared, and all the windows workstations (xp & vista) can see the shares. My problem is a permissions issue. if I issue the command
sudo chmod -R 770 folderName
then whoever writes to a file first has full access. however the permissions are being set to something like owner rwx group r__ other ___ . this is not what I want at all... any Idea how I can stop the file permissions from changing during editing? Excel 2003...
thanks for your help,
ps: it has been suggested that it might be something called "Opportunistic locking" but I have no real understanding of what this is...
