    Samba share rights

    Hi Guys,

    I'm setting up a small samba share server on my home lan, and I'm having some configuration errors.

    This is what I want to do:

    I want to share the following directories:

    /music --Read-only by everyone but user Trickster
    /stuff --Read-Write for everyone
    /Jorge --Read-Write for user Trickster, no access for anyone else.

    This is my smb.conf file:


    Now, if I browse the network under Windows, I see the server,though not the shares. If I click on the server (as to see what is inside. ie. the shares.) it asks me to type in a username and password, and no matter what I type, I can't get in. ???

    Also, are my share definitions correct for what I want to do?

    Thanks for any input.

    Ok, I figured I had to run smbpasswd. Now I am getting to some shares. My questions are now:

    1. How can I restrict some folders only for certain users?

    2. Do I have to create a local account for each user?

    3. Is there a way to set it up so the user won't be prompted for a password? Would that be a big security risk?

    Ill look into this in my Samba book. This isnt that bad as I recall. Just a few lines here and there.
