Samba question


Hi I set up Samba.

I try to share the /etc folder

I put in the conf file this:
[etc]
read only = No
browseable = Yes


On my win machine I see a the etc folder, but it is not the one that I want.

Any ideas?
Assaf

I try also /etc and it is still not working.

I know it is not the best idea, but this is internal network behind firewall, and I need it for backup. I have a daily task that backup the mysql db. And I want to backup this backup on the main backup server (running on windows)

Try out this:

[global]
workgroup = MYNET.ALL #Name of workgroup
interfaces = eth1 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0 #NIC for Net
os level = 65 #Important for Windows XP
server string = Samba Server
encrypt passwords = Yes
security = SHARE
smb passwd file = etc/samba/smbpasswd
socket options = SO_KEEPALIVE IPTOS_LOWDELAY TCP_NODELAY
wins support = No
load printers = No
kernel oplocks = No
guest account = yes
veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/

[homes]
comment = Home Directories
path = /home/user/public #user = login-name of user
read only = No
create mask = 0640
directory mask = 0750
guest ok = Yes



[gast]
comment = Gastverzeichnis
path = /tmp/gast/
read only = No
guest ok = Yes


but never share the /etc folder !!!

Remember, that the user must have the rights to get access to that folder.
