Thread: Writable Shares

    Writable Shares

    Hi i got my Samba shares working a-ok with my hosts on my network, but i can't see to create a share that is writeable. I'm using SWAT and i've set 'read only' to 'NO' The docs tell me this setting is the inverse of writable. So that didnt' work, then i tried putting 'writable = yes' under the share's entry in smb.conf and that didn't do diddly. any Ideas????

    Re:Writable Shares

    rememder teh share will only be writeable by the person who can also write to it when on the system - e.g. making /bin writeable to teh world in samba won't allow a user to do stuff unless he ia authorized to. that said here is my smb.conf file - anyone can write to /tmp or thier home directory.

    # Global parameters
            workgroup = HARRIS
            server string = Samba Server
            security = USER
            log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
            max log size = 50
            socket options = TCP_NODELAY
            dns proxy = No
            guest account = guest
            print command = lpr -r -P%p %s
            lpq command = lpq -P%p
            lprm command = lprm -P%p %j
            encrypt passwords = yes
            comment = Home Directories
            path = /home
            writeable = yes
            comment = All Printers
            path = /var/spool/samba
            print ok = Yes
            browseable = No
            comment = Temporary stuff
            path = /tmp
            guest ok = Yes
            comment = Printer
            path = /var/spool/samba
            read only = No
            guest ok = Yes
            print ok = Yes
            printer name = lp
            oplocks = No
            share modes = No
            path = /mp3s
            guest ok = Yes
            read only = Yes
            path = /mnt/cdrom
            guest ok = Yes
            read only = Yes

    I would make /tmp/Share writable if I "chmod 755 /tmp/Share" ???

    Re:Writable Shares

    nope!! then it would be writeable only byt root, who i assume owns it. chmod 777 /tmp should do it.
