Create a called Shared_folder which can be accessed by ALL users (group name = users). Therefore, in order to map the drive in windows, the user is promoted to enter valid user credentials.
I have the following Shared_folder with the following permissions:
drwxr-xr-x 2 nobody users 4096 Dec 27 00:24 Shared_folder
..and the following Samba config:
printable = no
writeable = yes
path = /home/Shared_folder
force group = users
comment = Common Documenets accessible by all users
valid users = @users
create mode = 757
public = no
directory mode = 777
But it when I try to map the drive in windows im unable to pass the user validation part as it keeps failing. I have restarted the Samba server but still no difference.
Could someone please shed some light as to how to get this working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
