So I have samba setup and running on my Ubuntu box. I've successfully logged in on my WinXP machine, and was able to browse my home directories but an unable to create files, folders, etc. No write access.
In my samba config, I have set the this line read only = no, thus granting access to write to my home directories.
For a project I'm on, I have a git repository cloned into a samba share. All of the files are owned by my smb username account. I need to be able to read and write to the files on my windows machine. The files need to have unix permission 644. I can only access them from my windows machine if I set the permission to 755. The account parker is a member of the www group.
I'am trying to create a samba share for a few users.
The share is as follows
comment = 2.5_Video1_share
path = /srv/content/2.5/video1
read only = yes
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
valid users = %S
[homes] are commented out since it's only the video1 i want to share.
I have a fileserver running openSUSE 11.2 and samba services for file access from MS Windows based workstations. My question relates to changing default permissions on files and directories created from the windows clients.
Following are extracts of the /etc/samba/smb.conf file :
