Question Samba 101

I am trying to set up a samba share with only one person being able to access that share..

now i have created the user, and set the password.. i have even set the permissions on the directory where i want that peron to map to.

now my question is this, how do i sync the passwords from the normal user setup to the samba setup.. this is puzzling to me.

if someone can help, i will be very grateful.

It's like adding a user to the system...

smbadduser username

This will add the user "username" to the Samba password file, then ask you for the password to use.

If, for some reason, you don't have smbadduser, you can do the same with the command...

smbpasswd -a username
