samba pasword dirs
I have installed the samba server on my linux suse 9.1 pro system because I want to share my documents and fileserver in a way that I can access them with my windows systems. There is one directory I want to protect with a password: my www docs of my webserver. The problem is that suse protects her files with a username and a password. In windows, you can only enter a password and NO username! Is it possible to protect a dir with only a password?
When I boot my windows system, I can access the password protected directory by entering a password and adding the username in a special way. (First I connect to my userdir, then I can connect to the password protected dir because windows remembers the username). When I have connected once, windows remembers the username/password and you are able to connect to that directory every time without entering a password again until you reboot the windows system. Is there a way to prevent this so you have to enter a password everytime you open the networkdir (without making changes on the windowssystem)?
I have 1 main directory from which I share most of my stuff (documents, movies, games, programs): fileserver. This directory is shared and contains many subdirectories. There is only 1 subdirectory I donít want to show people who are allowed to enter my fileserverdir. The only one who is allowed to access this file should be me. I would like to see a password on this directory. Is it possible to add a password to only this subdirectory of the fileserverdir? I donít want to specify every dir whether it should be shared or not. In simple words:
1. Share the dir fileserver.
2. Password protect just 1 subdir of the many subdirs in the fileserverdir.
