Samba


I've logged into Samba from a Doze box but only have access to the home folders of the users I'm logging in with. How is it possible to view / with a user?

Using one of the examples of /etc/samba/smb.conf so only one person can look at it. Only thing is you will not be able to write to many areas unless you change permissions. It is highly recommended not to do that. It will at least allow you to read many files unless root completely does not allow access to the file.
;[fredsdir]
; comment = Fred's Service
; path = /usr/somewhere/private
; valid users = fred
; public = no
; writable = yes
; printable = no

[fred's-root-access]
comment = Fred's Service
path = /
valid users = fred
public = no
writable = no
printable = no

Restart samba services.
