J'avais exactement le même problème sur une RedHat 5.
Ca venait de SeLinux, qui bloquait sans message dans l'audit.log....

Maudit RedHat!!!

Be sure the entire path has at least golbal 'read' permissions set!

A quick 'chmod 755 dir' solved the problem for me. Zounds!


Could you please tell me what path you are talking about

The path, on your Linux filesystem, you are trying to share and make available.

Let's say you want the following directory shared/available:


That is the path to which I was referring. You will need to be certain that the permissions on each of the directories is set appropriately i.e. /home, /home/myuser, /home/myuser/sharables, and /home/myuser/shareables/schoolwork.
