|Re: [PLUG] samba server frustration|

OK, so I'm trying to set up my Ubuntu box as a Samba server, something which I have done successfully in the past. This time, though, no luck. No, that's not quite true- if it simply hadn't worked at all, that would have been better. What I have is something which *almost* works, but not quite. What I get is a server where I can use XP or Mac clients to mount in read-only mode, but not w/write privileges. Obviously, that's useless. I've created the correct users w/the correct passwords, and the drive permissions are clearly correct, since I have no problem accessing the files locally. It's got to be the smb.conf file. So, can someone send me a copy of their working smb.conf, before I lose what tiny bit remains of my mind?
Hi Adam,Out of the (debian) box, I have my samba configuration working with the following section in /etc/samba/smb.conf
[data] comment = Data Directory path = /data browseable = yes read only = no directory mask = 0775 create mask = 0775 guest ok = noI had a write problem but it was due to the external harddrive that was in NTFS, and basic NTFS support doesn't do write. I had to mount it with ntfs-3g.
