http://www.linuxquestions.org – Okay, so I run a samba fileserver here at home for photo backups and what not. I'm working on adding a few account to some of the shares. I went ahead and created a unix user, i then did "sudo smbpasswd -a <username>" and added the user to the valid users portion of the share. I rebooted samba and, those users still cannot access the samba shares, while my account works just fine. Note: i chmoded the root of the shares to 777, after making the shares (rebooted samba) and still have the problem. What could be wrong? Thanks in advance. (HowTos)
